AID has filed more than 1700 lawsuitsin the Phoenix-area this year. The suits allege Americans with Disability Act violations in business parking lots, and the vast majority of cases involve signage issues.
Wake said the high-dollar settlement demands (often starting at $7000) need explanation. He also wants to know how often the attorneys give businesses the chance to fix issues before they sue.
The judge is demanding that the two lawyers file written responses to several questions and then appear in court on November 28.
In addition to tossing AID’s lawsuit, he could sanction the attorneys and even forward information on to Arizona State Bar, which already has several open investigations related to Strojnik and AID’s disability lawsuits.
Last month, another federal judge, Murray Snow, also sanctioned Strojnik and Zazueta for their conduct.
