Over the summer, a New Jersey woman, who happens to be deaf, filed a lawsuit against Taco Bell for discriminating against her at their drive-through window. The woman attempted to order by providing the employee at the drive-through window with a note that had her order on it, but she was refused service. On a previous occasion, she was allowed to order via note, but was told that the employee was making an exception just that one time.
When she was denied service, she entered the Taco Bell to find out what was going on and order food, but, as her court complaint alleges, not a single employee would even acknowledge her. She left without being served food and justifiably felt humiliated and frustrated.
