Deaf New Jersey woman sues Taco Bell over drive-thru orders


tacobellTRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A deaf New Jersey woman who primarily communicates in sign language is suing Taco Bell, saying the company and its restaurants failed to accommodate her at drive-thru windows.

Gina Cirrincione says she wrote her order and handed it to an employee at the drive-thru pickup window at a Taco Bell in Pleasantville in January. A video shows an employee saying he would take the order “one time,” but she would have to come inside in the future.

She also claims a drive-thru employee at a Taco Bell in Atlantic City returned a note for food without filling the order.

Cirrincione wants Taco Bell to develop a policy to consider the needs of deaf customers. She’s also seeking damages.

Taco Bell has not returned a call seeking comment.
