Hotel Transportation: Sage Hospitality Resources

Citation

Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center et al v. Sage Hospitality Resources, LLC, 15-cv-00236-REB-MEH

Issues

CCDC is joining the Civil Rights Education and Enforcement Center (CREEC)

 Lewis, Feinberg, Lee, Renaker & Jackson, P.C.; and Campins Benham-Baker, LLP. in litigation against Sage Hospitality Resources. Please read the information posted by CREEC, reproduced below:

These four class action lawsuits, filed in January and February 2015, allege that four major hotel owner/operators, RLJ Lodging Trust, Hospitality Properties Trust, Ashford Hospitality Trust, Inc., and Sage Hospitality Resources LLC, discriminate against individuals with mobility disabilities in the provision of hotel shuttle transportation.  Specifically, the cases challenge the hotels’ consistent failure to provide accessible options when they choose to offer transportation services to guests and charge that this failure violates the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, and California/Colorado state law where applicable. Plaintiffs named the trusts that own the hotels that run the transportation services, and in some cases, named the individual presidents and CEO’s of the companies because Plaintiffs obtained information that these individuals had daily responsibilities regarding the operation of the hotels, which would include the transportation services. 

Status

A Complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.

Defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint and Memorandum of Law and Defendant Isenberg filed a Motion to

Dismiss Plaintiffs’ First Amended Complaint and Memorandum of Law. The Magistrate Judge ruled on both motions. The Judge converted the Motions to Dismiss to Motion for Summary Judgement. The Judge denied the Motion to Dismiss, but granted the Motion to Dismiss Walter Isenberg. Plaintiffs filed Objections with the Article III Judge, Judge Blackburn. Judge Blackburn upheld the rulings of the Magistrate Judge. See documents below.

Plaintiffs have made a settlement proposal and await Defendant’s response.
