The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Edison is facing legal action for allegedly failing to provide accessible public restrooms while hosting a conference for people with spina bifida and other disabilities.
Attorney General Matt Platkin and the Division on Civil Rights say the investigation found hotel staff did not make proper accommodations, even though they knew many of the conference attendees used wheelchairs.
"It's shocking to imagine that a venue hosting a conference for disability advocates would fail to provide an adequate wheelchair-accessible restroom to the attendees. In New Jersey, that's against the law,” Platkin wrote in a statement.
Both sides now have an opportunity to come to a resolution. Platkin says that if they can’t, his office will press forward with prosecution.
