Miguel Castaneda on behalf of himself and others similarly situated v. Burger King Corporation, et al.
In September 2008, DREDF and co-counsel filed a class action lawsuit against Burger King for violations of state and federal civil rights disability access laws in the U.S. District Court in San Francisco. The suit asked Burger King to remove the barriers in their stores and fix their discriminatory practices. The initial case included ten Burger King stores in California and settled in 2010. A second case was brought in 2011 covering 86 additional Burger King restaurants. A settlement was approved in October 2012.
The lead attorneys on the case were Fox & Robertson of Denver, Colorado and Oakland firm Lewis, Feinberg, Lee, Renaker & Jackson. Also representing the plaintiffs were Mari Mayeda and Julia Campins.
