CHARLOTTE — William Norkunas is a man on a mission. Since contracting polio 55 years ago, he’s been an advocate for people with disabilities. In recent years, he’s taken his cause to the courts, suing shopping centers and other businesses not in compliance with the Americans Disabilities Act.
The ADA, enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), requires building owners to ensure that individuals with disabilities are not excluded from services, programs and activities because buildings are inaccessible.
Most recently, Norkunas filed a lawsuit against New York-based Centro Management, owner of the McMullen Creek Market Shopping Center on Pineville-Matthews Road.
