Mental health activist sues over 'Dr. Phil' taping

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ An Arizona man is suing the ``Dr. Phil'' talk show, claiming it violated the Americans with Disabilities Act in its treatment of him.

Neal David Sutz filed a lawsuit in federal court in Phoenix last week detailing his effort to attend a taping of psychologist Phil McGraw's syndicated series in 2003.

According to the lawsuit, Sutz and other prospective audience members were asked to sign a waiver attesting that they didn't suffer a mental illness and weren't under psychiatric care.

Sutz, who's been treated for bipolar disorder, claims he told a show representative of his condition and was told he could watch the taping if he didn't talk to McGraw or participate in the program.

The studio and McGraw declined comment.
