Denise Watts has sued in Cincinnati alleging discrimination by the Great Miami Valley YMCA in Butler County.
The lawsuit says the YMCA violated the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act by not providing "reasonable accommodations" in its programs and by discriminating and retaliating against her son based on his disability. The lawsuit wants the YMCA to provide such accommodations and seeks unspecified damages.
Attorney Michael Hawkins is representing the YMCA. He says it is gathering facts before commenting.
