Here's a little more information which presents a glimpse as to what this
guy and his brother might be about:

Last year, Magee's brother Emmett, who is also represented by Beumont
Costales, sued Coca-Cola in Louisiana arguing that all machines should be
accessible to the blind. The case was dismissed in a trial court but is
currently being appealed.

Well on the blind guy that was refused service for coming thru the drive
thru. This is wrong as there should be an exception in the policy! It is
just that plain and simple for a Blind or visual person. Also what happen
to the manager or supervisor that night! Anyone with plain common sense
would have made an exception in this manner! As JJ has said this reaches
much farther than just fast food drive thru! There needs to be acception for
these cases. Also I don't know if their policy has not broken the ADA law on
this . Shouldn't the drive through be accessible as well? They could also
took his order and brought it outside to him. As well. I just see where
there could have been just a little thought put in this just by the manager
or supervisor at that time and would have prevented all this! So his only
recourse is to sue! Not only for access and on the grounds of discrimination
but hit them where it hurts and that is in the pocket book. I hope that 3 to
6 buck meal they did not sell him now cost them a million bucks . If this
happen I bet they would change their policy and give training to all the
staff! It is sad that we have to take this rout when a little common sense
and caring for your fellow person would have went a long way! I really think
he will have no problem winning this at all! JMO!

BTW: I normally a conservative that is in the middle that leans to the right
on social issues but I have to lean a little more to the left on this!
