Last month, a federal Judge held that a grocery store website must comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As private litigants, advocacy groups, and the federal government continue to take action to ensure that interactions with the public, including through websites and mobile applications, are accessible to people with disabilities, businesses should stay abreast of the legal issues and practical considerations involved in managing risk in this evolving and increasingly litigious climate.

Please join us in a discussion on digital accessibility and what we can learn from recent cases. Members of Ballard's Accessibility Team will be joined by an expert witness from the recent Winn-Dixie case, Thomas Logan.

Topics will include:

  • Obligations under the ADA

  • Relevant litigation and enforcement activity

  • Common accessibility issues that create litigation vulnerabilities

  • Suggestions on next steps to reduce risk
