SDNY COURTHOUSE, January 3 –
In another round of website inaccessibility cases by blind plaintiffs, Arturo Estevez sued Kala Health Enrichment, Inc. and its website under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
On January 3, Judge Gregory H. Woods of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York held proceedings. Inner City Press has it covered.
The defense attorney said there is a growing body of case law that websites are not public housing under the ADA, and asked to be allowed to travel to terminate.
Justice Woods granted leave, saying the motion to dismiss is due by Jan. 24, with a response due three weeks later and a response, if applicable, two weeks later.
The case is Estevez v. Kala Health Enrichment, Inc., 21-cv-8833 (Woods)
