Terrell Frederick used the Americans with Disabilities Act to make money and now he, his attorney and third-party law firm are in trouble.

In 2017, News 5 Investigates uncovered an elaborate scheme to extort money from local business owners.

One case went to federal court and in a bombshell ruling, the magistrate judge has recommend possible jail time for the plaintiffs.

Over a two-week time period, Frederick filed 43 nearly identical lawsuits against Colorado Springs businesses, alleging they weren’t complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
