Frequent ADA plaintiff to face usual legal rival—but this time in sex harassment case by ex-workers

Catherine Corfee has opposed Scott Johnson in many a disabled-access case.
But Corfee, who has represented hundreds of small businesses sued by the paraplegic California attorney under the Americans with Disabilities Act, never anticipated that she would be representing plaintiffs in a workplace harassment suit against her longtime legal adversary, the Recorder (sub. req.) reports in a lengthy article. Both practice in the Sacramento area.
“There is a lot of irony,” Corfee told the legal publication. “All these years I thought I’d beat him on access. It never occurred to me that I’d have a sexual harassment lawsuit against him.”
Johnson and his lawyer didn’t respond to the Recorder’s requests for comment.
