In Part 1 of this 3-part series, my partner, Marty Orlick, Chair of JMBM’s ADA Compliance and Defense Group, explains how we got from providing parking for disabled guests, to providing websites and mobile apps that can be accessed by potential guests who are blind or sight impaired.
Now, in part 2, he writes about a few key court decisions that may affect ADA compliance and litigation, and what they mean to the hospitality industry.
This part is titled: ADA Website Accessibility Lawsuits Won’t Go Away in 2020: Part 2 – Rights to Due Process and Standing Requirements.
