Customer Question
I went into firehouse...

I went into firehouse subs and the people asked if my dog was a service animal; i replied with a yes and ordered my food. the manager(jennifer purcell) told me to prove my service animal was indeed a service animal I told jennifer purcell yes it was a service animal and I don't have to show the service animal ID card to her because I'm protected by the american disability act. She wanted me to leave and then she called the cops on me. I know she told me to leave because of my service animal and I did not want to be arrested so I left. I was completely wronged and treated like a criminal. I feel mental and emotional anguish from this situation, and want retribution from these people that hurt me mentally and emotionally.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have charges been filed? If so, when is the next court date?

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No no charges i cant find a lawyer to take my case

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am so sorry to hear about this situation. What you mean when they do is file a complaint with the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice is the authority that handles complaints regarding violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.You can click here to file a complaint. In addition, your state probably also file a complaint with the disability rights department in your state. You may also be able to file a private lawsuit. The ADA makes it illegal for businesses to discriminate against disabled individuals. To prove a violation of the ADA, a plaintiff must prove three facts. First, he must have a disability. Second, the business is a place of public accommodation. Third, he was denied full and equal treatment because of his disability. (Wilson v. Pier 1 Imports (US), Inc. (E.D. Cal. 2006) 439 F. Supp. 2d 1054, 1067.)

My recommendation maybe would be to find an attorney that could help you out with this situation. Did you have any other questions for me?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
