The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is intended to “prohibit discrimination and guarantee that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services.”
Title III of the ADA requires public accommodation businesses (restaurants, movie theaters, professional offices, hotels, etc.,) to provide accommodations to people with disabilities so they can have the same level of access to goods and services as everyone else, including business websites and mobile apps.
ADA website compliance lawsuits continued to be filed against businesses large and small, with what seemed to be no end in sight. However, recent defense rulings seem to have stemmed the swelling tide. How long will it last? What can businesses and organizations do to minimize their risk exposure?
