Man with Autism suing Sainsbury's for not allowing his support cat in store
I'm not sure about that,but if it helps him that's what matters. I've heard about sensory overload in supermarkets before. I don't think my experience when I used to shop on my own was sensory overload though. I just used to get overwhelmed visually by the amount of items and choice. I think I'd be too nervous to take a cat or dog round a supermarket.
Visual overload is sensory too. Choice is related to sense but could also be argued as a processing related. It all come under processing an is al related to perception.
I think this is an interesting case, becuase it falls between food safety.
The issue with suing is if the Retailer is following the letter of the law he doesn't have a case. The issue is with the law potentially.
The law allows for some support animals in a wide variety of case, but I'm not sure about this. On the other hand his solicitor wouldn't have taken it up unless they though they had a good chance.
That might depend on how ethical the solicitor is!
