Subject: New! Big Digital Accessibility Legal Win



Dear Lisa,

I write with great digital accessibility legal news to start the year. On January 15, 2019 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (a United Stated federal appeals court) issued an opinion in a web and mobile accessibility case against Domino's Pizza. The court held that the Americans with Disabilities Act covers websites and mobile applications.  

I wrote a  <https://lflegal.us13.list-manage.com/track/click?u=c8f001aa20f9400bde58e6bfd&id=ed2747ed95&e=b4af0f85a9> short post about the court's decision here. It includes a link to the full 25 page court order.

The lower court had thrown the Domino's case out of court because there are no regulations under the ADA specifically requiring private organizations serving the public to make their digital properties accessible. The appeals court reversed, saying regulations are not needed because the ADA itself covers Domino's website and mobile application.

The case will stay in court. 

The court's opinion in the Domino's case is another resounding win for digital accessibility. I hope it will help put an end to many of the fights over legal issues in the digital accessibility space. 

Toward an accessible 2019,
