Florida Plaintiff Sued Orange County Hotel Under ADA Now Default Looms, Vaccine Cited

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 17 – The Fairbridge Inn and Suites in Highland Falls in Orange County, New York, has been sued under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  

  Plaintiff Saim Sarwar lives in Florida and has limited use of her hands; she is visually impaired and relies on a wheelchair. She visited the website of the property "but was unable to do so."

She sued, via a firm in Newton, Massachusetts.  

The case has been assigned to U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge John G. Koeltl; Inner City Press dug it up in the docket.

On May 17, Judge Koeltl held a proceeding and Inner City Press covered it. The hotel did not appear, and Judge Koeltl discussed with plaintiff's counsel the filing a motion for default judgment. He gave extra time in part because the lawyer cited being "knocked down" by COVID vaccine side effects. Strangely, there was some early discussion, still, of service of process.

The case is Sarwar v. Wabno Hotels, Inc., 21-cv-43 (Koeltl)
