Is there a better way to enforce businesses to comply with ADA than opportunistic private lawyers?

Many small businesses find themselves victims of opportunistic lawyers who sue them for not complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA and laws to reform such lawsuits have not worked ( http://bit.ly/ADA-suit ). Would you support legislation that replaces these predatory lawsuits with a simple local, state or federal law that blocks a businesses annual license renewal until the business produces a "certificate of disable access"?

    I agree. Opportunistic trial lawyers [it a shame to even call them lawyers or attorneys] are the lowest mutant form of human excrement.

    ADA is the law; I do not like those drive-by attorneys. The City could make a plan, give business owners a time limit to comply; be reasonable. New building code could be required. Increasingly our older population requires this access so it is past time to fool around. We can get this done. I would not put the business license in jeopardy until the business refused to comply in a reasonable amount of time after notification by the City.
