Cracking down on ADA lawsuit abuse

By Joseph Perkins

ada_signing_072690_ucpI was a White House staff member when George H.W. Bush was in the Oval Office. I remember well when he signed the Americans With Disabilities Act into law, insisting that it would not “lead endlessly to litigation.”

Not in his wildest nightmares did Bush envision a serial litigant like Alfredo Garcia. The illegal immigrant (no, he’s not even a U.S. citizen) has filed more than 600 lawsuits against mostly mom and pop businesses in Southern California claiming ADA violations.

A convicted felon, Garcia hasn’t had a proper job in years. Nevertheless, he has made a pretty good living for himself shaking down small businesses, many of which happen to be owned by immigrants just like him (except that they are not professional plaintiffs).

Indeed, Garcia has testified in court that he usually makes about $4,000 a case. In 2008, that added up to $125,000 in legal settlements, according to an investigative report that aired last week on KABC-TV in Los Angeles.

Yet Garcia has claimed under oath that he made only $16,500 in settlements in 2008. He low-balled his earnings so that he would qualify for fee waivers on his hundreds of ADA lawsuits.

Each case should have cost the serial litigant a $300 filing fee. But instead of paying nearly $195,000 for his more than 600 ADA lawsuits, Garcia got away with paying nothing by pleading poverty.

The trial lawyer behind the serial scammer

Of course, Garcia wouldn’t have been able to generate so many lawsuits, and wouldn’t have been able to obtain waivers on all them, without legal assistance. And that was provided by his long-time trial lawyer Morse Mehrban, who earns a 50 percent contingency fee on all of his client’s ADA litigation.

In fact, ADA litigation makes up three-quarters of Mehrban’s legal practice, he told KABC. So prolific is the trial lawyer that his firm accounted for 30 percent of ADA lawsuits filed in L.A. County in 2010.

Mehrban sees nothing wrong with shaking down small immigrant-owned dry cleaners or nail salons. “Isn’t every lawsuit technically extortion?” he told KABC.

Moreover, Mehrban thinks that Garcia and the other ADA clients (he represents a couple dozen at a time) are somehow performing a public service with their litigation.

“I’m actually encouraged by it,” he said, “because it shows that people are doing something. They are standing up for their rights.”

Well, the only “right” Mehrban’s clients are standing up for is the dubious right to file spurious ADA claims not for the purpose of fighting discrimination against the disabled –- which was the law’s original intent -– but to earn themselves money for nothing.

Finally, good news on shakedown suits

220px-Grateful_Dead_-_Shakedown_StreetGov. Jerry Brown last year enacted a measure, SB 1186, intended to rein in ADA shakedown suits and discourage serial litigants like Garcia. It reduced potential damages to as little as $1,000 from the previous minimum of $4,000, but it posed no real deterrent to ADA plaintiffs.

The real game changer was not a piece of legislation but a California Supreme Court ruling this past December in which the justices held, for the first time, that plaintiffs who lose ADA lawsuits are liable for the defendant’s attorney’s fees.

That court ruling scared the bejeebers out of even a serial litigant like Garcia — so much so that he has sworn off of filing any new ADA lawsuits.

    They both should be thrown in jail or deported.

  2. Bill - San Jose says:

    Unintended consequences. Great idea with absolutely tragic application.

    Nice article Mr. Perkins.

  3. Small Business Owner says:

    Terrific article, unfortunately it resembles the litigious workers comp system that exists in California. Has anyone ever been convicted (or even accused) of filing a fraudulent claim, even though it’s a “crime” on the books? What about post employment injuries, this is absolutely one of the biggest scams in our Golden State. Wish someone from Cal Watchdog would uncover the abuse that is so prevalent, even with the recent “reform” These tactics by trial attorneys leave small business owners with some of the highest workers compensation premiums in the nation. Workers Comp FRAUD is now an epidemic, just watch daytime Telemundo for a few minutes and see who is advertising.

  4. SkippingDog says:

    If you and the Bush administration didn’t want the ADA to result in litigation to ensure compliance, why didn’t the act include federal enforcement provisions? I’m also curious as to why the ADA included Private Attorney General provisions for enforcement it that was the case.

    I know, you wanted it both ways: A civil rights act with no federal enforcement teeth and no private civil enforcement teeth either, right? That way you could claim to be helping the disabled but know all the time that there would be few consequences for ignoring the law.

    If business owners want to avoid a lawsuit over ADA compliance, all they have to do is make sure their business adheres to the ADA legal requirements. It’s really very simple.

    As to the Small Business Owner above, California Workers Compensation is rife with abuse, but many of the most egregious criminal acts are by small business owners who misidentify their employees to obtain a lower rate. It’s very common for someone who employs roofers or carpenters to buy WC insurance and claim that percentage of their workforce is a secretary or some clerk with a far lower coverage rate.

  5. Silvia Ronberg says:

    MORSE MEHRBAN AND JULIE MEHRBAN husband and wife created a law office of MORSE AND JULIE MEHRBAN to file thousands and thousands of ADA lawsuits and collect hundreds of thousands of dollars. Check it out yourself by public info check.

  6. samina says:

    There is another player in this game Raymond G Gallister and client Chris Lnager.
    now they are sueing each business. i dont know what is going on with our justice system. That is so sad.
    we own a restaurant and we just got sued by the above mentioned people. and now we dont know what to do even SB1186 is no help.
    if we want to go thru lawyers now defendent lawyer charging 5 to 7000$ plus plaintiff attorney charges so total you will end up paying more then 12000$.

    i dont know what kind of law is this killing small businesses. If any body can help us.

  7. Mitch says:

    Businesses a long University Ave and El Cajon Blvd just got sued by Chris Langer and his lawyer, Mark Potter. They are filing civil action lawsuits against small business owners all over San Diego. If you own a business in the Hill Crest or East San Diego be on guard because they are there now. We must contact our senator, governor and city mayor to change the laws. What they are doing is a SCAM!

    I just got my 5th one in 2 years and Im fighting them! Its costing me a lot of money but Im gonna bust this group of extortionist on my dime and since Ive been challenging them they are back pedaling! Im gonna sue all of them….I currently have 3 pending now….its all the lawyers that are referred in this article plus a couple others and they all work together!

    • Ro Mitchell says:

      Oh and sorry but the Jerry Brown idea of bringing us the SB1186 is BS!!It allows the business owner 60 days to fix the problem? Well here is my problem with that, I own 2 bars that are located in very old buildings and in order for me to renovate my bathrooms is going to cost me in excess of $30k PER BUSINESS and I don’t even own the building. How am I going to do these renovations when these extortionist keep suing me and taking my money??? grrrrr Its exasperating!!

    • Nicole says:

      Ro, we got sued 2x. I know what they are looking for & we have a lawyer in the family.

  10. MIKEY says:

    here is what will happen if you do what they expect:

    you will go to a lawyer ( or you may have gotten a letter from some law firm about the same time you were served offering to represent you)

    you hire a lawyer ( usually $2000+ retainer fee)

    they sympathize with you about how wrong the situation is, contact the ada lawyer, tell you even thought its totally wrong, the law is so poorly written you don’t have a chance,

    if you take it to court ( they will tell you) you will loose thousands in legal fees and have to pay anyway.

    they convince you to settle for a lesser sum.

    you pay, and hope you are done with it.

    what really happens.

    the lawyers all know each other, work you for all they can ( both sides)

    all they really do is type up some papers * usually substuting the names and info in a pre-done format.

    and the scam goes on.

    if you choose to represent your self, chances the ada lawyer will try and weasle a few bux out of you not to take it that far.

      Subject: ADA CASES GOLDMINE FOR PARASITE LAWYERS

    http://www.adaabuse.com/pages/1/index.htm

    This  is about law firms  going after small businesses under the “guise” of enforcing the ada act ( americans with disabilities act)

    I think, just by looking at the sheer volume of cases they are doing it for profit ( at appx $8000 settlements per case times over 2000 cases)  it is big money.

    What I am focusing on here is just in the San diego area,  nation wide it is enormus.

    The lawer  Pinnock had hundreds of cases on the books in federal court.

    one of his “clients”  Mr. Gash has many also ( all using Pinnocks firm)  below is just a few, I have found hundereds by cross referencing them on the federal court acces site.

    I  found most settle out of court for about $8000,  the ones that  go to court ( at the request of the persons being suied) seem to be setteled in favor of the  small businesses, or thrown out of court by the judge, never going before a jury as requested )

    my advice ( request) it spread the word on this,  make them ( and all the other  lawyers that are doing this for profit) take every case to court.

    also, complain to  your local congress persons,  the media, ect.

    I have heard ( as we all have) of this going on, but until I actually looked at the federal court site and saw the  volume of cases  it did not have much meaning.

    I HAVE SEVERAL MORE EXAMPLES  AVALABLE ON REQUEST:

    also, looking at the   complaints being filed,  it appears to be generated by a word processing programme,   and the lawfirms just insert the names of the persons and businesses.

       below are:  CASES BY PINNOCK

    there are hundreds more listed on the  Federal court  web site found by corss referencing some of their clients

    we were sued the 2nd time while while the business was under construction to correct the ADA by the certified ADA specialist. We intend to go forward to trial. Any advice?

    • Ro Mitchell says:

      Yes!! Ive had 5 in past 2 years and all my money I put aside to become ada compliant has gone to my atty fees etc…I paid off the first 2 but after that I said im fighting this to prove that they ARE extortionists!!! I will be on the front cover of the Daily Breeze newspaper this coming Monday elling my story and then I am being flown as a guest to the state capitol in Sacramento on Wednesday to tell my story to the California legislatures to try and get these laws amended and expose them….

  17. MIKEY says:

    Nichole

    check here http://dockets.justia.com/search?cases=mostrecent to see if ( most likely) the lawyer or supposed ada person is doing it repeatedly just for the money

    bring that info to the court ( and the news media if you like) to expose the scam

  18. Ro Mitchell says:

    I own two bars in Torrance and have had 5 of these drive by plantiffs just sue me the 5th time in the past 2 years…I will be in the front of the Daily Breeze newspaper on this coming Monday sharing my story and have been invited to go to the capitol in Sacramento the following Wed to speak in front of the California legislature to try and get these laws amended….keep fingers crossed and know Im doing this for not only my businesses but also for all of you other business owners who have been violated….

  19. Dave polanco says:

    I went to Sac yesterday, spoke with several lawmakers. Spoke with Bigelow regarding his proposed AB1885. It’s a step toward alleviating the abuses and I came away with the feeling that he genuinely empathized with our plight. Personally I feel he’s pissing into the wind. I don’t think he will get anywhere with it on his own. Relative to the number of victimized indivuals and businesses by these predatory lawyers there was but a handful of us speaking out to these lawmakers. These guys are aware of the abuse, they are afraid of being demonized as “Anti handicappers”. This holds true for the judges handing down their rulings. They hide behind the laws on the books. The book says your grab bar should be 18″ Mr business man, it was found to be 17 & 7/8″–”Ruling for the plaintiff!”
    If all those out there that piss and moan about these abuses just do that nothing is going to change. It takes numbers to make these lawmakers to get out of their comfort zone and make some real changes. Being victimized is something one wants to put behind them, I know, but your story needs to be heard and to these lawmakers You paid the extortion and now you just want to get back to your business. Please do not sit back and think you’ve paid your “Protection fee”, you are still at risk as so many of us are.
    We beat the first round of An ADA lawsuit in federal court, it’s in Apellate on appeal and we expect to beat that. The attorney contacted her buddy Ballister and had him file on us, we will beat him as well. All this is at great expense. It would have been easier and less costly to pay them off but I’ll be damned if I will let some rapist screw my business!
    I implore each of you who have been violated to descend on the Capitol when Bigelows law comes to vote! We can only prevail in strength of numbers!

  20. David says:

    I can’t believed that the Govt. let them get away with it, where is justicssssss ?????

  21. Lee from Hopland says:

    If minority students receive more than their proportionate share of detention, the liberals go crazy, no matter if the punishment is justified or not.

    Why hasn’t someone organized some of the many minorities who have been victimized by these suits, and file a class action discrimination suit or at least a claim with the Dept of Justice?

    Doues handicaped trump minority abuse?
