Shopping Center Council seeks input on survey regarding lawsuits

The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) is surveying to learn more about a rise of lawsuits alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act at private businesses that are open to the public.

ICSC says a “cash for compliance” industry has emerged wherein lawyers collect cash settlements as a result of easily-correctable legal compliance infractions that could have been addressed out of court. Typical targets of so-called “drive-by” federal lawsuits might be retailers, hotels, restaurants and commercial and residential real estate.

Click here if you wish to participate in ICSC’s survey. For questions or additional information, contact Abby Jagoda, Director of Public Policy & Best Practices, at 202-626-1403 or ajagoda@icsc.org.
