Hole-in-One for Disabled and Senior Golfers
In a disability civil rights case against Marriott International, Inc. with far reaching implications, the firm and its co-counsel, Disability Rights Advocates, have achieved a significant victory for disabled and senior golfers. Federal Judge Phyllis J. Hamilton in San Francisco ruled that Marriott violated the ADA, the California Disabled Persons Act and the Unruh Act by refusing to provide accessible golf carts as a reasonable accommodation “for plaintiffs’ with mobility impairments”. Nance Becker, of Chavez & Gertler, commenting on the decision stated: “We hope [the] decision will make Marriott Resorts more welcoming for their potential customers, and encourage other golf resorts to do the same.”
