Willits, et al. v. City of Los Angeles

GBDH has joined the law firm of Schneider Wallace Cottrell Brayton Konecky, Disability Rights Legal Center, and Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center as class counsel in the case of Willits v. City of Los Angeles, No. CV 10-05782 CBM (C.D. Cal.).  GBDH and its co-counsel represent a certified class of persons with mobility disabilities who are denied access to sidewalks and other pedestrian rights of way in Los Angeles.  The case alleges that Los Angeles has violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 by failing to install accessible curb ramps at intersections and failing to maintain sidewalks in a condition that is useable by class members who rely on wheelchairs, scooters, and other assistive devices to get around.
