DENVER (AP) -- A federal judge in Denver is considering an injunction after ruling that nearly 250 Abercrombie & Fitch Co. and J.M. Hollister LLC clothing stores are unfriendly to the disabled.
Judge Wiley Daniel agreed in March with the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition that the retailers that cater to a hip, young clientele limited access for customers in wheelchairs.
Daniel says the only remedy under the Americans With Disabilities Act is an injunction ordering the problems to be fixed. He says individuals cannot be compensated.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of several Colorado customers who say they had trouble getting into the stores and that the sales countertops are too high.
The companies say they complied with all construction standards in effect at the time.
