Kum & Go Chain Settles Disabilities Lawsuit

The Kum & Go convenience store chain will spend millions of dollars to make changes at more than 400 stores in 11 states to settle a lawsuit that claimed its gas stations failed to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act. A Clinton, Iowa, man who uses a wheelchair filed the class-action lawsuit in April 2013 on behalf of all Kum & Go customers who use wheelchairs or scooters. A federal court judge on October 30 approved the settlement negotiated by attorneys for the company and the man, Gary McDermott. It specifies the company will bring 100 stores into compliance within two years and 75 additional stores each year until modifications are made at all stores. Modifications include fuel assistance calling devices at gas pumps and relocated fuel pump controls.
