Segway lawsuit against Disney dismissed
by UPI

ORLANDO, Fla. - A federal judge in Florida has thrown out a lawsuit that claimed Disney World discriminated against the disabled by banning Segways.

U.S. District Judge Gregory Presnell dismissed the suit on the technical grounds that the three plaintiffs had not shown they actually planned to visit Disney World, the Orlando (Fla.) Sentinel reported. One of the three has multiple sclerosis, one Lou Gehrig's disease and the third is missing a foot.

Disney World argued that the motorized stand-up scooters could be dangerous maneuvering through crowds in its parks, especially if used by people not trained to operate them. Its lawyers also said that motorized wheelchairs and sit-down scooters are allowed.

The plaintiffs had sought to have the lawsuit certified as a class action.
