Disabled man sues McDonald’s

BY MANHATTAN NEWS STAFF

A disabled man is suing fast food giants McDonald’s after staff refused to serve him because of his red-vested service dog.

Wheelchair-bound Robert Mingo, 52, from Minneapolis, accuses his local burger joint of violating the federal Americans With Disabilities Act by refusing to let him eat inside the restaurant.

Mingo suffers from muscular dystrophy and relies on Max, his 4-year-old service dog, to open and close doors, help him with chores and assist him in getting dressed.

According to the lawsuit filed in federal court, Mingo wheeled himself into the McDonald’s on West Broadway and was told at the counter he could not be served because he was accompanied by a dog.

The manager told him “We don’t serve those things in the drive-through,” Mingo alleges.

In 2013, Mingo again visited the McDonald’s with Max, a border collie-springer spaniel mix.

His order was taken, but the manager told him he had to leave, the suit says.

Mingo told the manager he was legally entitled to be in the restaurant with his service dog.

“I am the manager here, and I am the law,” he replied, according to the suit.

    Howdy! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
    able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    With thanks!
