Wednesday, October 03, 2007 ADA Class Action Certified

In a ruling filed October 2, 2007, Judge Marilyn Hall Patel of the Northern District of California certified a class action against Target Corporation (owner of Target department stores and the related website). The suit alleges that Target failed to comply with provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act because the site was not fully accessible to blind persons. Judge Patel was careful not to delve into the merits, but the lesson here should still be obvious: your site needs to be fully accessible to persons with disabilities.
