A blind Louisiana man is suing for for the ability to use McDonald’s drive-thru windows, reports the Austin American-Statesman. A lawsuit filed in Chicago federal court on behalf of Scott Magee alleges that McDonald’s vehicle-only drive-thru policy is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The Statesman reports that late-night munchies are the main rub:

Many McDonald’s locations only serve customers at the drive-thru window during late night hours. Magee’s lawyer, Roberto Costales, tells the Tribune that getting a late night snack at McDonald’s is “a quintessentially American activity that should not be denied to someone because of their disability.”
