An activist who has filed more than 1,000 lawsuits in California over disabled access has another target.

George Louie enlisted nine other plaintiffs to help him file suit against Wells Fargo, in Alameda and Sacramento counties. He alleges 30 branches violate the disabled-access laws. He acknowledged a grudge is involved … saying that he’d been treated wrongly by the bank. The primary violations in the lawsuits cite the lack of the words “No Parking” in the striped zone next to a handicapped parking space. He’s seeking nearly $3 million in general and special damages. Most of the businesses Louie has sued have settled out of court.
