NEWTON (CBS) – There’s been a legal setback for a former WBZ sportscaster in his lawsuit against a Newton golf course.
A judge has ruled Woodland Golf Club can stop Bob Lobel from using a special golf cart on its course.
Lobel filed a discrimination lawsuit against the club in 2015, saying he needed the golf court to get around. The club argued it would damage the greens.
The Boston Globe reported Wednesday that a judge ruled in favor of the club, saying because it’s a private facility with selective membership, it’s not subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Lobel’s lawyer says he’s planning to appeal.
