Legal Alert: Multiple ADA Lawsuits Target Central Coast Businesses

A recent string of lawsuits have many local businesses again paying close attention to their own compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”). One individual, along with the same attorney in each case, appears to be targeting restaurants and retail businesses across the Central Coast. The two individuals have filed a number of lawsuits alleging violations of the Act in SLO County and down south as far as Ventura. As you may know, under California law, any violation of the ADA is considered a civil rights violation and subject to a minimum statutory penalty of $4,000, plus attorney’s fees.

C&N Closes Significant Deal for Prominent Central Coast Insurance Firm

 

Carmel & Naccasha LLP attorneys recently facilitated the integration of a highly regarded employee benefits agency and brokerage on the Central Coast with the strength and resources of a leading global insurance brokerage. Here’s what the owner of the agency had to say once the deal was completed:

“It has been an exciting time at my company with a recent transition and merger. We could not have done it without the expert assistance of Carmel & Naccasha. All of their people, especially Ziyad Naccasha, worked tirelessly to bring our transaction to conclusion in a timely manner. It was not unusual to get an email from them at 10 pm, still working on our behalf. They concluded our transaction in 12 days while normally this type of thing would have taken months. Top-notch service, expert advice, working on our behalf, ethical proceedings, polite and thorough….what more could you want from your professional team?”

-Connie Framberger

New Deposition Time Limits Merely Presumptive

The recent time limits for deposition of opposing party witnesses had created quite a concern among litigation attorneys – especially defense attorneys – that the new law would unduly hamper what is otherwise pretty broad rights to discovery in lawsuits filed in California. Most concerning were the apparent “set in stone” time limits for depositions in complex cases – situations which would seemingly call for the greatest amount of leeway given the number of parties and issues involved. The Second District Court of Appeals, in its recently issued Certainteed Corporation v. Superior Court (decision filed January 8, 2013) has swiftly responded with an opinion that reads into the law the flexibility that many trial attorneys have been seeking (albeit largely by defense focused counsel).

Proposition 65 Is Coming to Your Town!

As featured in the SLO County Bar Bulletin:

You’ve likely seen the retail signs and product labels telling you something like this:  “WARNING: This product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.”  Those warnings are the result of efforts by businesses to comply with California’s Proposition 65 – and to avoid expensive enforcement actions.  The Proposition requires businesses to provide “clear and reasonable” warnings to individuals prior to exposing them to specified carcinogens and reproductive toxicants. In the 25 years since Proposition 65 was enacted by California voters, those enforcement actions have mostly missed San Luis Obispo County businesses.  But it looks like that’s changing, and local businesses should beware:  Proposition 65 enforcement is coming to your town.
