    There are good laws and bad laws.

    I myself do not follow laws I do not agree with (assuming to do so does not cause me too much hardship).

    Only sheep follow laws blindly.

    It really seems petty and downright nasty to screw up people's lives with petty lawsuits. I hope there's a special place in Hell for this jerk.

    Then you should be ashamed of yourself. You're glad that a good, decent business has gone under, the economy is now worse, and a dozen people are now jobless... all because of the threat of a frivolous lawsuit by a scumbag lawyer trying to extort money from hard-working people, over a violation that never presented a problem to a single person.

    You should move to Cali, sir. You'd fit right in. Oh wait, you're from New York... that makes sense too. I heard that tomorrow Bloomberg is gonna pass a new law for you guys that you can't cross the street without holding someone's hand

    Including the disabled.

    From the top linked article:

    'Jerry Silvia, a longtime Ford’s customer who is paralyzed from the chest down, said the lack of accessibility has never stopped him from enjoying his regular order: a 1/3-pounder with fries.

    “I’ve been coming here 21 years,” Silvia said. Of Johnson, he added: “He’s strictly crusading on his own behalf.”'

    I actually lived in California for a year. I hated it.

    Anyway, I don't know how much warning this business had. Court cases take a long time, so the business would have had plenty of time to comply with the law before this thing went to trial. If businesses don't want to comply with the law, then they deserve to be shut down. That's just how the system works.

    Trust me, I break a lot of laws I don't agree with.

    But if I was to be arrested for breaking one of these laws, I wouldn't expect to be exempt from the law just because I disagree with it.
