Man Settles Lawsuit Against Minneapolis McDonald’s Owner
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A disabled man who sued the owner of a McDonald's restaurant in Minneapolis has settled out of court.
Terms of the settlement between 53-year-old Robert Mingo and the restaurant owner were not disclosed. But, an attorney for the defendant says the agreement includes a requirement that all customers, including those with service dogs, will be welcome in the restaurant.
Mingo and his service dog visited the restaurant in August 2012. Mingo was refused service because of the dog, so he went to the drive-through and again was rejected. He went back inside and was finally served, but told not to return. Mingo went back to the restaurant in May 2013 and said he ordered food, but was told to leave. Mingo sued in April.
