ADA lawsuit targets popular Davis burger joint
DAVIS, CA - A disabled attorney who has sued more than 1,500 businesses under the Americans with Disabilities Act has turned his attention to a popular diner that once made news because of its distasteful name.

Scott N. Johnson filed an ADA lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Sacramento, claiming he was unable to dine at Redrum Burger because the doors, tables, service counter and restrooms are not accessible to wheelchairs. Johnson also noted the lack of disabled parking spaces.

Redrum Burger, which opened in 1986 as Murder Burger, changed its name in 2001 after complaints from customers. Much of the diner's business is takeout, served through sliding windows at the front of the building.

Owner Jim Edlund said he remembers receiving a warning letter from Johnson, but believed his building was exempt because it was built in 1949.

1. It can be so hard to be in compliance
with the ADA. The place I work isn't. We try our best. We have a lot of elderly customers and folks with physical disabilities. Thankfully, to date, they've all been understanding and get that we're going out of our way to make sure they have a good visit.
