In this presentation, Ken Nakata will review web accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act, including the current split in the Federal circuits.
In April, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals released its decision in Gil v. Winn-Dixie. Many advocates proclaimed it was a major blow to disability rights and some suggest that only a miracle in the Supreme Court can fix the problem. This presentation offers a broader perspective and describes why the Winn-Dixie decision really isn't surprising and shouldn't have much impact on disability rights at all.
