Florida Serial Plaintiff Sues Colo. Businesses
DURANGO, Colo. — A Florida man has filed dozens of lawsuits against small businesses across Colorado alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Durango Herald reported.
Santiago Abreu is a self-identified “tester” for ADA compliance, according to the dozens of federal lawsuits he has filed since July in Colorado. But some say Abreu’s efforts are an attempt to extort money from small businesses because he quickly offers to settle for cash, the paper noted.
