Ten disabled plaintiffs filed a class-action lawsuit in U.S. District Court last week that accuses the City of Portland of its “systemic failure to provide full and equal access to its sidewalks to Plaintiffs and similarly situated persons with mobility disabilities.”
Specifically, Portland has allowed the homeless to take over public sidewalks and criminals to run wild.
National Review reports specifics on a few of the plaintiffs:
A 66-year-old woman who had a bottle thrown at her as she maneuvered around a Portland, Ore. homeless camp in her electric wheelchair.
A 62-year-old longtime Portland resident who relies on a wheelchair and a service dog, and who was assaulted, spat on, and sprayed with mace by homeless people
