Default Man Sues White Castle Over Booth Size

There's a video of the guy in the link.

So, the 290 pound guy who goes to eat at fatty White Castle is complaining the booths don't fit his 290 pound frame. Well, perhaps if White Castle is going to provide a bunch of food that makes people fat, perhaps they should provide booths for fat people. However, I very much disagree that this violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. If anything is disabled, it's this mans' self discipline.

Man Sues White Castle Over Booth Size

By Adriana Diaz | Trending Now – 7 hrs ago

Even though we live in a supersized world, bigger is not always better. One devoted White Castle customer is suing the restaurant chain because he can't fit into the restaurant's booths. Martin Kessman, who weighs 290 pounds, complained to management for more than two years after repeatedly knocking his knee into the tables' metal supports. After the 64-year-old New York stockbroker sent a series of letters of complaint to the chain, he received what he called condescending responses. White Castle sent him free hamburger coupons and promised that it would expand its booth sizes. But the booths were never changed and Kessman is now taking his case to federal court. He is suing for bigger chairs and unspecified damages because he says the eatery is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. (He compares himself to pregnant women and the handicapped.) The lawsuit, however, has not put an end to Kessman's love of mini burgers. Now, instead of going to White Castle himself, he sends his wife.

This doesn't sound very nice but I just wish someone would give him a good a$$-kicking.
