After years of demand letters, complaints and settlements, a website accessibility lawsuit under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§12181-12189 (ADA or Title III), finally went to trial in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. See, Gil v. Winn-Dixie Stores, Inc., Case No. 1:16-cv-23020-RNS (S.D. Fla. June 12, 2017). At the conclusion of the two-day court trial conducted in mid-June, the district court entered judgment against Winn-Dixie Stores, the website’s owner and operator, requiring Winn-Dixie to, among other things, ensure that its website complies with the World Wide Web Consortium’s Website Content Accessibility Guidelines, version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0).
