‘Shouted Out of the Retailer:’ Maskless Shopper’s ADA Declare vs. Residence Depot Eliminated to Federal Courtroom

Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton lawyers withdrew a lawsuit against Home Depot USA in Connecticut District Court on Wednesday. The lawsuit for alleged violations of the ADA was filed by Updike, Kelly & Spellacy on behalf of Daniel Reale.

Reale, a Plainville resident, cited chronic sinus infection and related allergies as a qualifying disability that precludes the use of a protective face mask while trying to shop at a Home Depot store in Montville, Connecticut. The plaintiff alleges that the store staff “called him out of the store” and denied him access to public accommodation “as a result of inappropriate and illegal policies and inadequate or improper training.”
