Giant Eagle Motion To Dismiss Denied

By Carlson Lynch On December 3, 2014

On December 3, 2014, the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania (Eddy, J.) issued an opinion and order denying a motion to dismiss filed by Giant Eagle, Inc. The motion sought dismissal of a class action complaint filed by CLSK on behalf of a plaintiff with a mobility disability. In the complaint, CLSK alleged that parking lots at defendant’s grocery stores have slopes in their accessible parking spaces and paths of travel that violate the requirements of the ADA. The case subsequently settled.
