There is a disabled parking spot inside the apartment complex and it is not being used by anyone. When my wife, a valid disabled parking placard holder, parked there she was told that spot was for temporary parking only and she could not park there. We contacted the ADA department to ask but we have not received a response in 2 weeks.
If the spot is handicapped parking and your wife has a valid handicapped placard displayed in her vehicle she can park in the spot. You may want to speak with an ADA plaintiff's attorney as the owner of the property may be liable for violation of California and federal ADA laws. There are a number of law firms, including one in San Diego, that represent plaintiffs on a contingency fee basis in lawsuits against property owners where the owner fails to comply with state and federal laws that are intended to protect the disabled. You should seek legal counsel from a qualified ADA attorney or firm.
