It all starts at home for Norman Steiner, who has fought for the rights of many, from parents who need to protect their children to folks expressing their First Amendment right to his own fight against discrimination.
Norman, who lost a large portion of his left leg during a motorcycle accident almost 10 years ago, is now suing USA Boxing Inc. for not allowing him to fight at Gleason's Monthly Boxing Series because of his disability.
Martino told Steiner over the phone, "And if I let you fight then what? I have to let a double amputee fight also?" the lawsuit says.
"So what? If the double amputee can box, let him box too," fired back Steiner's attorney Robert Tolchin.
Steiner told the Daily News "The staff at Gleason's have been fully supportive of me. They are outraged by what USA Boxing is doing."

“He is extremely remorseful,” said his lawyer, Norman Steiner. “He was the first to go down into that hole in what turned out tragically to be a failed rescue attempt."
Mr. Steiner called the prosecution a public relations ploy.
“If the city put as much energy into inspecting the jobs properly as they do into rallying the support of the press and shifting liability off themselves, perhaps we wouldn’t be here today,” Mr. Steiner said on Wednesday outside the courtroom. “An architect designed the job. Engineers designed the job. Plans were filed.”
Post-Star reporter Don Lehman wrote that the man “known around the region as the felon who keeps spitting on his lawyers” was “an intelligent, well-studied man and he is a better writer than many lawyers whose work I see.”
