On May 10, 2023, BGL partner Jessie Weber presented at the Association of Air Pollution Control Agencies (AAPCA) webinar on “Digital Accessibility for Air Agencies.” Jessie shared her insight on the legal considerations and best practices for digital accessibility for public entities like air quality agencies.
Webinar attendees included staff from state and local air agencies and multi-jurisdictional organizations serving air pollution control agencies, attorneys, and advocates.
The AAPCA is a national, non-profit, consensus-driven organization focused on assisting state and local air quality agencies and personnel with implementation and technical issues associated with the federal Clean Air Act.

Recently, Jessie and partner Eve Hill resolved a website and mobile app accessibility case brought by Guillermo Robles, a blind man from Los Angeles, against Domino’s Pizza. The groundbreaking case saw the Ninth Circuit reverse a previous district court decision and hold that the Americans with Disabilities Act requires businesses like Domino’s to make their website and mobile apps accessible to blind customers. Domino’s has since confirmed its commitment to maintaining the accessibility of its website and mobile applications to individuals with disabilities.
