ADA lawsuits for profit?

Are some people taking advantage of ADA law to make profits instead of breaking down barriers? That's the question Sacramento's KXTV investigated after local businesses complained. No captions but you can read the story here.

The USA is sue-oriented isn't it ? The UK not. More is the pity, I woudl welcome litigation cases for access more, IF, the winning proceeds went to launch other cases to force inclusion/Access through. However experience of looking at the USA modus, tend to tell me they are for personal gain or recompense not access par se, all we get is the publicity. We asked charities here to do the legal angle, but the state said if they brought cases they would oppose their charitable status, there is also a law being discussed to stop charities getting involved in ANY political area, quoting "Rights' as 'political' to prevent us fighting through charity on that issue. We don't live in a democracy anymore in the UK.
