A new federal lawsuit alleges that a woman with a foot disability was denied membership at a Murfreesboro Planet Fitness because a manager wanted to avoid allowing other people with disabilities to join, the Daily News Journal reports. The complaint alleges that Planet Fitness violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it denied Deanna Neal's application due to her disability. Before filing the federal complaint, Neal's attorney, Kerry Knox, said he sent a letter to the gym in February, demanding management allow her access. He told the newspaper he has not received a response.
