These fraudsters should be locked up and throw away the key. Every asset should be seized for restitution to the small businesses they ruined. I am particularly furious about Jason’s cafe, Menlo Park being forced to close by this. They were a wonderful family run restaurant that employed many longtime staff. The worst part is that I often saw people in wheelchairs and other disabilities dining there and the staff could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. SHAMEFUL that they had to close due to repeated frivolous, fraudulent lawsuits by these type of fake ADA suits. If their goal were really to improve accessibility they would work with a business to improve things not shake them down for money.

I'm absolutely thrilled that this group of extortion artists is finally getting what's coming to them. It is disgusting that this is allowed to happen at all. A legitimate claim is one thing, but this is serial extortion and nothing less. They finally tried to shake down someone who wouldn't lie down and just take it and that is wonderful.

Frankly, I think that the law related to the ADA should be more strict and that individuals should not be able to collect ANY money other than actual damages. The only damages a business should ever pay is actual damages and correcting any issues. These huge settlements encourage this sort of slimy activity and it should stop.

I hold out hope that both of the Moores will be disbarred and unable to practice law anywhere. May they then have to open a business where this same tactic is something they are subjected to.

Kudos to Ms. Saniefar and Mr. McAdams for shining the light on these disgusting fraudsters!

What about building owners who refuse to follow the law for decades?

Thank goodness all this is coming to light. I am beyond thrilled that this is one step closer to coming to an end. The most recent e mail addres i could find for Mrs. Moore is . Feel free to send her a strongly worded letter.

It appears that shyster law firm's feeling the heat, deservedly; its domain ( has been deactivated, so presumably email will bounce back. Attempting to access its website elicits a "Bad Gateway" response -- "Bad" being SO apt!

All these real estate folks who can't be bothered to follow a decades old law.

Fix your buildings with some of your obscene real estate profits!

But it's a good diversion, attacking lawyers. We don't like them either.
