According to news sources, a man who weighs nearly 300 pounds has filed an Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuit against White Castle in a federal court in New York, claiming that the stationary booth seating in a Nanuet restaurant is made for smaller people and that he hurt a knee trying to wedge into one in 2009. When he complained in writing, he purportedly received three “very condescending letters,” with offers for free hamburgers, although added cheese would have cost extra. He has since used take-out to purchase his food from White Castle or asked his wife to go into the facility to pick up his meals, while waiting almost three years for promised renovations that would have enlarged the seating spaces. Stockbroker and plaintiff Martin Kessman reportedly said, “I just want to sit down like a normal person.” See New York Post, September 11, 2011; The Wall Street Journal, September 13, 2011; USA Today, September 14, 2011.
