Northern California Regional Director Marko Mlikotin had a letter-to-the-editor published in the Lincoln News Messenger on ADA abuse. He wrote:
"The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was meant to increase access for disabled people but a few unscrupulous personal-injury lawyers and professional plaintiffs have made fortunes by targeting businesses for shakedown lawsuits.
"Often, these lawsuits are filed when access has not being deterred in any way. These lawsuits don’t ask for any accessibility improvements to be made, they ask for money to make the lawsuit go away. Small businesses are often the target of these shakedowns suits and many quickly settle because of the exorbitant costs of fighting a lawsuit."
