This is the one area where I'm all in favor of unfettered access by everyone.
Ya figure the bouncers could just carry the guy up the stairs?
Quadriplegic sues strip club over wheelchair access for lap dances
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) --A quadriplegic has sued a strip club, charging that it violates the Americans with Disabilities Act because the lap dance room does not have wheelchair access.
Edward Law sued the Wildside Adult Sports Cabaret last month after visiting the West Palm Beach club in May and June.
The lap dance room is only accessible by a short flight of stairs, according to the suit. It also alleges that the counter around the stage where strippers dance is too high, making it difficult for Law to see the stage and set down his drinks.
"This is an industry that is high profit and knows about ADA and is ignoring it," attorney Anthony Brady Jr. told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I have no sympathy for them violating ADA."
Law also sued another West Palm Beach strip club, The Landing Strip. He charges both clubs with violating ADA standards for bathrooms and parking spaces.
The suit seeks an unspecified amount of money in attorney's fees and asks that the clubs comply with federal disability standards.
Bret Rudowsky, Wildside's general manager, said Law could have received a lap dance elsewhere in the club.
Law declined to comment. He has also recently filed ADA lawsuits against an Orlando restaurant and a Daytona Beach Harley-Davidson motorcycle shop.

Ya know as frivilous as it sounds I could almost understand his suit against the club, the resturaunt probably has merit, but for the life of me I can't see him looking to purchase a dam Harley. ***
