Cruz-Alvarez, Zucker Analyze Restaurant's Appeal of ADA Application to Websites

Shook Partners Frank Cruz-Alvarez and Talia Zucker analyze an appeal of a Ninth Circuit decision holding that a restaurant's website and mobile app are subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act, in "Domino's Pizza Seeks Supreme Court Resolution of Whether the ADA Applies to Websites," published in The Legal Pulse (Washington Legal Foundation). 

Domino's filed a petition for writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court to review the decision in Robles v. Domino's Pizza, LLC, No. 17-55504, which found that Title III imposes accessibility requirements because they "connect customers" to the goods and services of the restaurant chain's physical locations, which are places of public accommodation under the ADA. The company points to a split among appellate circuits about whether website accessibility violates Title III, and points out that the decision will effectively apply nationwide.
