Please help! We own a small property of land (a parking lot) in LA, California but we live in Washington and haven't been to CA for years. We got recently sued for "violation of the unhurt civil rights act, civil code section 51" and "pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 474." According to the complaint, the plaintiffs were unable to park because it lacked a 192-inch-wide van-accessible handicap spot and adjacent access aisle and because of that, they experienced difficulty in a place of public accommodation.  We are being sued for no less than $8,000 in damages, fees at rate no less then $400, costs, and prejudgement interest! I really don't think this is fair and we really don't have the money to pay for that! Please give us some legal advice!

Turn this over to your insurance carrier for the property.  Your policy covers garbage lawsuits like this and they are obligated to defend the suit.  This is nothing more than a professional deadbeat looking for a quick buck via "go away" money.
