NYCHA Tenants Sue to Get Safe Wheelchair Ramp

Three tenants represented by MFY Legal Services, Inc. filed suit today against the New York City Housing Authority for failing to correct an access ramp that is too dangerous for people using wheelchairs, rendering the entrance inaccessible to them. The suit seeks declaratory and injunctive relief as well as compensatory and punitive damages under the Americans with Disability Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and the New York City Human Rights Law.
