The salient point in this incident is that Celebrity never advertised the suite that the passenger booked to be "ADA Compliant."

This lawyer is going to have a tough case because the passenger, who obviously needed an ADA compliant cabin, did not book one.

If the passenger used a travel agency, though, there may be a good case against the travel agent and the agency for booking the passenger in a cabin that obviously did not meet the passenger's need.
