Disabled vs. Disney
Who would have thought that Disney would be the mark of a lawsuit and against the disabled no less? A few years back, they decided to ban the use of Segways in their parks because they posed a risk of injury. One disabled couple decided that they were discriminated against and that it was a violation f their rights. Disney agreed that they would provide a safer alternative and the case was dismissed. In the end, the couple received a $4000 settlement which paid for a week in Disney Land.
