PITTSBURGH — A disabled woman filed a class-action lawsuit against Amerco Inc., citing alleged disability discrimination.
Lead plaintiff Nicole Shetler filed a complaint July 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, alleging that Amerco violated Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that she experienced unnecessary difficulties at the defendant’s facilities as a result of inaccessible parking lots and paths of travel.
