A man from New York filed a federal lawsuit against White Castle last week, after he failed to fit into one of the restaurant's booths.
In the lawsuit, Martin Kessman, a 6-foot, 290-pound man, says that he was embarrassed in 2009 when he attempted to slide into a seat at a White Castle in Nanuet, N.Y., reported the Star Tribune. He was also in pain after banging his knee against a post under the table.
The lawsuit claims that the restaurant violates the American With Disabilities Act because its seating fails to accommodate someone of Kessman's size, the Star Tribune reported.
USA Today reported that the seating at the Nanuet White Castle is typical of most fast food chains, with single units that have a set distance between the table and the seat.
Jamie Richardson, White Castle spokesman, said that Kessman could have asked for a folding chair, reported USA Today.
Richardson said that the White Castle will be replaced and larger seats will be put in.
