The news last night said Maloney's was slapped with a "huge" fine. Really? $2500 is a huge fine for a freakin' bar? The fine should have been the tens of thousands for the dis-service they did to a handicapped person.

You're right.  I wonder why she settled on such a low amount?

It sounds like the settlement was between the government and the bar.  Someone give the woman Sam Bregman's phone number.

Yep, the settlement with with the USDOJ.  But I agree, $2500 is not really a huge fine.  I think the bartender and other employees should be required to use wheelchairs instead of their legs for a month.  See how much they enjoy life as a handicapped person.

You know, Joy Junction's Jeremy Raynalds might have better funding if he weren't so blatantly against the sinful "homosexual lifestyle" whatever in the hell that is.  I've chosen to support other organizations.
