Digital Accessibility: The 2020 View

The onslaught of claims and litigation regarding digital accessibility continued in 2019, encompassing not only websites, but also mobile apps and other digital technology. In October 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court denied certiorari in Domino’s Pizza, LLC v. Robles, letting stand the Ninth Circuit’s decision that a plaintiff may bring Title III of the Americans with Disabilities (ADA) claims regarding inaccessible websites and mobile apps. This webinar will cover legal developments from 2019, with a look forward to expectations for 2020.

  • The rise in digital accessibility claims has not been limited to Title III of the ADA. In addition to state law claims, employment claims also are occurring. Topics to be covered include:
  • What the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Domino’s Pizza does – and does not – hold
  • Challenges to standing – how some courts are taking a more critical look
  • State law claims
  • Digital accessibility in the workplace – implications for hiring systems, intranets and software
  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 versus 2.0
  • Recommendations for mitigating risk and navigating the legal environment
