A blow for Domino’s Pizza is a win for disability advocates

Tags: 

Domino’s Pizza has been embroiled in litigation for well over three years against plaintiff Guillermo Robles, who alleges its website and app make it impossible for a person using a screenreader to order a pizza online. After the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld its ruling in favor of Robles (that the ADA does in fact apply to websites) in January, Domino’s petitioned the Supreme Court to hear the case. On Monday the Supreme Court decided not to hear it, and did not supply any comments or dissent to justify the rejection. In it of itself, this is not a tacit approval of the Ninth Circuit’s decision, but the rejection does imply to US companies that are fighting digital accessibility lawsuits that the ADA will continue to apply to digital properties and content for the foreseeable future.
