WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A Dracut man has sued the city of Worcester saying the DCU Center and a nearby parking garage are not fully accessible for people with disabilities.

The city owns the arena and the garage.

The Telegram & Gazette (https://bit.ly/ZxiETh ) reports that the federal lawsuit, filed by Dino Theodore and Access with Success Inc., seeks to compel the city to improve accessibility for the disabled.

It says the DCU Center doesn’t have enough wheelchair seating and what it does have is not fairly distributed.

The suit alleges there are not enough disabled accessible parking spaces in the garage.

City officials say the arena opened in 1982, before the Americans with Disabilities Act became law, and parts of the building added or substantially renovated since the act took effect comply with accessibility standards.
