Judge weighs injunction against Abercrombie & Fitch over store accessibility

Denver -- A federal judge in Denver is considering an injunction after ruling that nearly 250 Abercrombie & Fitch stores, including its namesake and Hollister banners, are unfriendly to the disabled, the Associated Press reported.

The judge agreed in March with the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition that the stores limited access for wheelchair-bound customers.  He said the only option under the Americans With Disabilities Act is an injunction ordering the problems to be fixed, the report said.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of several Colorado customers who alleged they had trouble getting into the stores and that the sales countertops are too high.
