Apple sued for alleged violation of accessibility laws at retail store

It looks like Apple's facing a lawsuit of a different sort than the ones it's used to, with two California women now suing the company over alleged violations of accessibility laws at its flagship retail store in San Francisco. According to AppleInsider, the pair say the store poses a whole range of difficulties for people in wheelchairs, with products out of reach and the Genius Bar in particular all but inaccessible. They also say the store's presentation theater has no wheelchair accessible seating areas or passageways, making it impossible for them to attend instructional workshops. While the two women are seeking a jury trial and compensation for "emotional and physical losses," they apparently aren't giving up on the store entirely, saying they "intend to return and patronize this Store, once legally required access has been provided."
