The Pep Boys lawsuit is one of the most talked about lawsuits in recent history. There are many people who feel that the lawsuit was brought upon by a group of obese men, who felt that they were discriminated against when it came to their requests to have meals pre-paid for them at local restaurants. The suit is being handled by the Southern California District Court. There are two different cases that are being fought in this lawsuit. Both involve claims that the defendants served improper foods in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
In the first case, the plaintiff is asking for compensatory and punitive damages.
This includes an award to compensate for medical bills, medical care, disability income, pain and suffering, as well as future medical care. In the second case, a former male employee is suing his former employer, in order to obtain compensatory and punitive damages for claims related to the unsupervised work performed by him while he was working for the company.
The complaint was filed against three separate defendants. The first individual that is being sued is Continental Dining Room and Bar, as well as its owner, Brian Fanale. The next defendant is identified as Bill Plympton, who owns and operates Bill’s Lunch. A third defendant is identified as Gary McKnight, who is the owner of the Tramway Restaurant. The restaurant in which Mr. McKnight operated was called The Tramway. These are all defendant’s that are being sued for failing to properly serve and accommodate their disabled customers.
The plaintiffs in the Pep Boys lawsuit are asking for monetary damages based on an array of criteria.
They are seeking an amount for past and future medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and a loss in earning capacity. Additionally, they are seeking an amount for punitive damages, such as a loss of income. In addition, they are seeking an amount for past and future psychological harm, such as fear of serving drinks in a restaurant. The claims also include mental suffering and an increase in the chances of depression in people who have to regularly serve drinks in restaurants.
A former employee of the Tramway Restaurant claimed that he was fired from his job because he used a wheelchair.
According to the filing, he often went into the restaurant complaining about problems with the food and being served in a wheelchair. On more than one occasion, he was fired because of these complaints. He further claimed that he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder due to the experience.
The Tramway Restaurant was sued by the former employee, Bill Plympton.
Mr. Plympton was an extremely popular waiter at the Tramway. He frequently dined alone and would be loud, rude and boisterous. This is indicative of a personality trait common in many irresponsible employees that have been found within the Pep Boys lawsuit. It is quite common for someone with such characteristics to abuse medication or alcohol, even if this is not their intention.
There are many more employees that have been sued, many of whom have had to suffer extreme emotional distress.
The main named plaintiff in the lawsuit has endured severe anorexia and bulimia for years. She has also suffered from chronic depression and anxiety as a result of her work at the Tramway. She has never recovered from the devastating effects of her injuries.
One other person who was a regular customer at the Tramway also filed a lawsuit against the Tramway. This person was severely injured when a waiter in the dining area hit him with a heavy steaming pot of spaghetti. The victim needed to have surgery and missed many days of work. The man who was responsible was eventually fired from the Tramway. As a result of this and several other similar incidents, The Pep Boys lawsuit was brought against the Tramway. It is currently pending in court.
