BoIA: Website Accessibility Lawsuits Expected to Rise From Trump Administration

PROVIDENCE, RI—(Marketwired – August 03, 2017) – Under the guidance of President Trump, the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has deprioritized the monitoring and regulation of web accessibility standards. This is a striking about–face, given that the DOJ had promised earlier that it would promote increased web accessibility regulations as part of the legislation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

By abandoning the pursuit of these improved standards, Trump's DOJ is keeping the regulations for website accessibility murky and thereby allowing for more complaints to be lodged and more suits to be filed against organizations and businesses that are not in compliance.

By not following through on the promised steps toward a more transparent standard for website accessibility, President Trump and the DOJ are unwittingly contributing to the ongoing flurry of website accessibility lawsuits.
