DETAILS

Jason Ford, a quadriplegic who uses a wheelchair, filed a disability discrimination case against an apartment in downtown San Diego.

“The unit was very small, so I couldn’t get into the shower,” Ford told KPBS Midday Edition on Monday. “It wasn’t really fit for someone disabled.”

Besides modifying the unit for accessibility, the landlord was concerned that Ford was “too disabled” for the building.
