Disabled man, brother sue National Air and Space Museum

Suit claims museum embarrassed patron, denied him access to flight simulators

A disabled 21-year-old man and his brother are suing the National Air and Space Museum for discriminating against and publicly embarrassing them.

Max Gold of Merrick, N.Y., was born with a rare vascular condition that required one of his legs to be amputated at a young age. He also must use a wheelchair. Gold and his 25-year-old brother, Jake, were visiting the renowned museum last summer when they tried to use one of the featured flight simulators.
