Defense Victory: Complete Trial Victory In Civil Rights Case

An Orange County jury took little more than an hour to decide that Call & Jensen client Marie Callender Pie Shops had not violated disability laws that a woman who uses a wheelchair cited when she claimed the size of the stalls at the restaurant chain's diner in Buena Park prevented her from getting access to the toilet.

Jurors also rejected Plaintiff Sue Gasper's claim that our client was required to renovate bathrooms at all of its 136 locations in the western U.S. under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and the state Unruh Act. (Gasper v. Marie Callender Pie Shops Inc., Case No. CV05-1435)
