PITTSBURGH — A lot attendant is suing Kenny Ross Auto Group, a used car dealer, citing alleged disability discrimination, retaliation and wrongful termination.

Larry Peer filed a complaint on Dec. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against Kenny Ross Auto Group, alleging the used car dealer violated the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Feb. 22 he was terminated from his employment. He was caused to suffer from significant emotional distress and lost wages and other employment benefits. The plaintiff holds Kenny Ross Auto Group responsible because the defendant allegedly discriminated and retaliated against him by terminating his employment because of a disability and for engaging in a protected activity.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks back pay, front pay, pre- and post-judgment interest, compensatory damages, attorney’s fees and costs. He is represented by Susan Williams and Adam Gorzelsky of Williams Law Offices in Greensburg.

The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 2:18-cv-01658-NBF.
