Description

Title III of the ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities by public accommodations and imposes many affirmative obligations to ensure that people with disabilities have access to the facilities, goods and services of public accommodations.

ADA lawsuits historically targeted physical access barriers, but with the increased use of digital platform to deliver goods and services to customers, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of lawsuits about websites, mobile apps and kiosks that cannot be used by people with disabilities. The legal landscape in the digital accessibility universe is constantly evolving, creating fertile ground for lawsuits and demands by serial litigants.

Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused public accommodations to change the way they operate. With those changes comes a host of new accessibility challenges for individuals disabilities who have started filing lawsuits about these alleged new barriers to access.

Listen as our experienced panel discusses this fast-moving area of the law that is changing on a daily basis, and provides the most up to date information on those cases and how to avoid being the target of such suits.
