POSTPONED: The Next Wave of Accessibility Class Action Litigation in the Retail Industry: Braille Gift Cards

Friday, March 20, 2020 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

For the past few years, retailers have been confronted with a tidal wave of litigation alleging that their websites are inaccessible in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Indeed, in 2018 alone, one analysis determined that there were at least 2,558 web accessibility cases filed in Federal Court a 177 percent increase from the previous year. The new wave of accessibility litigation presents a number of issues for retailers to consider. This program will address the legal basis for these claims as well as the defenses available to retailers faced with these claims. The program will also include a detailed discussion of a number of novel legal issues associated with these claims that have yet to be resolved by the Courts.
