No plan to return = No standing to sue.

Deutsch, who relies upon a wheelchair for mobility, contended that the parking lot of a local business did not comply with the ADA, and sought injunctive relief against the business. The trial court dismissed for lack of Article III standing and the Fifth Circuit affirmed. “Deutsch hoas not provided a description of any concrete plans to return to Travis County Shoe, and he also has not shown how the alleged ADA violations negatively affect his day-to-day life. Deutsch . . . had not been to Travis County Shoe before the day he alleges he encountered the ADA violations . . . [and] that he had not returned to the business since that day.” Deutsch v. Travis County Shoe Hospital, No. 16-51431 (Feb. 2, 2018, unpublished).
