Portland Attorney for Veterans, Daniel A. Bernath, Esq., writes citizen ticket to BI MART for fines of $22,000 for blocking handicapped and wounded veteran's parking spaces
Demand that BI MART pay fines of $440,000 for the 20 years of blocking handicapped parking
There are tens of thousands of wounded and crippled veterans returning home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. They can park in any handicapped parking space in America except in front of the BI MART in Tigard Oregon.
BI MART and BI MART employees, have been blocking the handicapped parking spaces to promote sales forcing the crippled war veterans, elderly and other disabled people to walk agonizing long distances just to get the staples of life at the Tigard Marketplace Shopping Mall at 13500 SW Pacific, Tigard Oregon.
BI MART and the culpable BI MART employees have been summoned into Tigard Municipal Court 13125 SW Hall, Tigard 97223 on March 4, 2008 at 2 pm to answer for their conduct.

For the last 20 years
Disabled and in constant pain from his wartime injuries, Bernath decided he must overcome those obstacles to help out the wounded, crippled vets, the old and the disabled. Bernath filed a citizen summons & complaint against BI MART and the employees at Tigard Municipal Court. (Oregon law permits people other than police to issue Summons and Complaints, ORS § 153.048 et seq.)
The fine for all the BI MART defendants is about $22,000 for their most recent cruel forcing of the disabled and wounded war veterans to walk great distances to the stores. Bernath says that even though the statute of limitation has run out for BI MART’s past 20 years of lawlessness that as good citizens they should pay fines for the past years of blocking handicapped and wounded veteran’s parking spaces by giving $440,000 to the Disabled American Veterans at www.dav.org to “make things right”. (The summons and complaint only refer to BI MART’s lawlessness in April 2008)
Even though Bernath is in constant pain and must use two crutches to safely get around, Bernath says he will overcome his obstacles to issue fresh tickets to BI MART if they block the spaces again. April is BI MART’s favorite month for blocking the spaces set aside for wounded veterans and the elderly.
