Idiocracy Watch – Chipotle sued

Soooo…. there is a legal right to watch your burrito being made.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday that customers in wheelchairs are denied the “Chipotle experience” of watching their food being prepared because the restaurants’ 45-inch counters are too high.

The company now faces hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages.

The unanimous three-judge ruling overturned a trial court decision pointing to Chipotle’s willingness to prepare a disabled customer’s order elsewhere. The appeals court said that is still unfair.

    I really hate the 9th Circus.

    Oooh, now these clowns are going to get a chance to review the Arizona illegal immigration law case. I think it’s fairly obvious they are going to wrongly uphold the lower court’s decision to strike down the law as unconstitutional.
