Disabled plaintiff bring suit for Virginia Lottery access

According to this article in the Roanoke paper, a lawsuit has been filed in Richmond Circuit Court claiming that some convenience stores that sell lottery tickets are not in compliance with accessibility requirements.

The article says:

"Four Roanoke Valley convenience stores have been named in a lawsuit filed against the Virginia Lottery, which claims that the lottery continued to do business with the convenience stores even though they violated disability laws and its own regulations.

The lawsuit was filed by four men with disabilities throughout Virginia - including the chairman of the board of the Blue Ridge Independent Living Center in Roanoke - and names convenience stores in Roanoke, Salem, Abingdon and Winchester."
