After nearly 50 years, the Jointed Cue Billiard Club has been closed. The business was hit with an ADA lawsuit from Scott Johnson.

According the CBS 13, the lawsuit states, “These inaccessible conditions denied the plaintiff full and equal access and caused him difficulty, discomfort, and embarrassment.”

Owner Mike Murphy said, “The cost associated with just fixing a bathroom, some counters…it’s more than the business itself.”

The suit is 17-pages. It claims the business has many ADA violations including a narrow entrance, bar tops too high and small toilet stalls.

Apparently Scott Johnson has filed over 2,000 cases since 2004. However, to me it seems like these are important changes to be made. There’s a reason the ADA exists. But, you never want a business to go under.
