Recent News – ADA class action against CVS®

Recently, together with our colleagues from Connolly Wells & Gray, LLP, attorneys from Kalikhman & Rayz, LLC initiated a class action against the CVS Caremark Corporation – a national operator of the “CVS Pharmacy” brand of pharmacy retailers for failing to maintain its facilities accessible to individuals with disabilities in the Greater Philadelphia area. As detailed in the complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, CVS has engaged in willful violations of the applicable provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq., and its implementing regulations, by flagrantly disregarding explicit requirements of reasonable accommodations necessary for the disabled (e.g., failing to install proper parking spaces and access aisles closest to the entrance of the retail facilities and failing to designate “van accessible” locations).
