Quadriplegic sues strip club
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A quadriplegic has sued a strip club, charging that it violates the Americans with Disabilities Act because the lap dance room does not have wheelchair access, according to The Associated Press.

Edward Law, of Orlando, Fla., sued the Wildside Adult Sports Cabaret last month after visiting the West Palm Beach club on May 9 and June 14.

The lap dance room is only accessible by a short flight of stairs, according to the suit. It also alleges that the counter around the stage where strippers dance is too high, making it difficult for Law to see the stage and set down his drinks.

The suit seeks an unspecified amount of money in attorney's fees and asks that the club comply with the federal disability standards.

Bret Rudowsky, Wildside's general manager, said he was unaware of the problems, and Law could have received a lap dance elsewhere in the club. HME
