At Rally Against ADA Lawyer, Chile Lindo Owner Sort of Loses It

Categories: Doggy Bag

Our favorite morsel from the blogs.

Embattled Chile Lindo owner Paula Tejeda organized a rally yesterday to protest the alleged targeting of small Mission businesses by disability lawyer Thomas Frankovich. And, as this video taken by SF Weekly reporter Lauren Smiley shows, Tejeda just sort of lost it. Smiley:

Thursday's rally at the 24th Street BART station regarding the bevy of disability access lawsuits recently filed against Mission mom-and-pop restaurants didn't start a revolution. There were no signs or chants. Only three reporters and a handful of onlookers even showed up. Yet there were two take-away lessons: One, the Mission restaurant owners being sued are hurting, big-time, because of the Americans with Disabilities Act suits brought by notorious attorney Tom Frankovich. ... And, two: If you're going to rumble, you most certainly want Chile Lindo's Paula Tejeda on your side.
I guess. Read Smiley's report of Tejeda's freak-out at our sister news blog, The Snitch.
