PHILADELPHIA - A disabled woman is suing a national office supply chain for allegedly failing to provide wheelchair access into the company’s store.
Jessica Slivak filed a lawsuit July 13 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against Office Depot for failure to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the filing, the plaintiff, who requires the use of a wheelchair, experienced difficulty and unnecessary risk due to barriers to access the store at 9755 Roosevelt Blvd. The filing states the company failed to designate a van accessible parking space and access ramp space as required by federal law.
The plaintiff seeks a judgement in her favor to require the company to meet requirements of the ADA law and seeks repayment for the costs of the suit and attorney’s fees. She is represented by Arkady Rayz and Demetri Braynin of the Kalikhman & Rayz Law Firm.
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania case number 2:15-cv-03869-PBT.
