An attorney who sued businesses for not meeting ADA requirements is now facing his own lawsuit, for not meeting those same requirements.

Brothers James and Robert McCarty own Town & Country Liquors in Lockeford. Their business, along with about a dozen others were sent letters stating they did not meet ADA code and they had 60 days to fix the problems.

In the resulting lawsuit, the woman and her attorney Russel Humphrey, claimed the businesses did not have van accessible space or signage.

The McCarty brothers have filed a lawsuit this week against Humphrey and his office building in Lodi claiming they had trouble visiting him to discuss the legal action they faced.

They say there were not enough disabled parking spots, and the elevator was either hidden or not working when they stopped by Humphrey’s Lodi office. Their suit points out the irony of Humphrey’s profession and the violations reportedly found at his place of business.

The McCarty brothers want the case to go before a jury.
