Scherr v. Marriott International, Inc.

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Americans with Disabilities Act
Case Number: 
No. 11-3833
Decision Date: 
January 7, 2013
Federal District: 
N.D. Ill., E. Div.
Dist. Ct. did not err in granting defendant’s motion for judgment on pleadings in plaintiff’s Title III ADA action for injunctive relief seeking removal of spring-hinged door closers that resulted in plaintiff’s injuries while plaintiff stayed in one of defendant’s hotel rooms. While plaintiff had standing to bring instant action based on her statement that she would stay in defendant’s hotel in future if it removed spring-hinged door closers, plaintiff could not establish viable ADA claim where said door closers complied with applicable ADA regulations.
