In this special episode of ADA Live!
On April 7, 2021, the U.S. Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Gil v. Winn-Dixie that websites operated by businesses are not “places of public accommodation” under Title III of the ADA. Gil’s inability to access the Winn-Dixie website, due to his blindness, therefore, was not in violation of the ADA. In the court’s opinion, the company’s website, without a point of sale, did not present an “intangible barrier” to Gil’s shopping for goods and services at Winn-Dixie’s physical stores.
Please join us for this special edition of ADA Live! to discuss the impact of this decision with our guests: Mark Riccobono, President, National Federation of the Blind; Howard Rosenblum, CEO of National Association of the Deaf; Bruce Sexton, JD, plaintiff in National Federation of the Blind v. Target; and Peter Blanck, Chairman of the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University.
