Irvine Partner Interviewed by Restaurant Hospitality on Rising ADA Violations
Is your website ADA compliant? A recent ruling from the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals stated that not only can a website be in violation when they effectively restrict access to physical locations, but can also be in violation if it impedes access to certain services. Irvine Partner Colin Calvert talks with Restaurant Hospitality for its article “Are Your Digital Services ADA Compliant?” on the rising Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations of company websites and the eliminated defenses for businesses against ADA lawsuits.
Colin notes that most ADA website lawsuits allege “that users who have vision problems or other disabilities are unable to access information from a website using screen-reading software designed for that purpose. The increase in ADA litigation around website access reflects not only the ease with which such lawsuits can be filed, but also the increasing prevalence of digital media in foodservice marketing and operations.”
