Target Being Sued for Website Inaccessibility

Go read “Court Denies Plea for Dismissal,” from the Web Site Accessibility Blog. The Federal Court Judge marilyn Hall Patel has ruled that “a retailer may be sued if its website is inaccessible to the blind.”

What Target lost was their plea for dismissal – not the ruling on whether or not federal law on accessibility applies to websites. But stay tuned – it has some HUGE ramifications for those many library websites that aren’t terribly accessible.
