Target agrees to make its website accessible to the blind, pay $6 million

Brown Goldstein & Levy represented the National Federation of the Blind and a class of blind Internet users in California in the first case in the country to address the application of the Americans with Disabilities Act to websites. The case established the applicability of the ADA to websites that relate to physical places of public accommodations. National Federation of the Blind v. Target Corporation, 452 F. Supp. 2d 946 (N.D. Cal. 2006). After winning that ruling from the court, the case resulted in a $6 million settlement, plus a commitment from Target to make its website, www.target.com, accessible to the blind.
