Robles v Domino’s: What the Domino’s Appeal to the Supreme Court Means for Website Accessibility Litigation
CLE Credits earned: 1 GENERAL (or 1 LAW & LEGAL for WA state)
Domino’s pending request for a writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court might be pointing the way to a revolution in website accessibility litigation. This webinar explains what the case is about, why the lower court decisions were important, why the writ is unlikely to be granted, and why the case will still have an important impact on future cases.
This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.
Key topics to be discussed:
• Why ADA website accessibility litigation is a big deal
• The legal issues driving website litigation in federal and state courts
• Where Domino’s v. Robles fits in the larger picture of website accessibility litigation
• Why the requested writ probably won’t be granted, and why the case is still important for business owners with websites and their lawyers
