Senators Send AG Sessions Letter Seeking Clarity on Website Accessibility Under ADA

Takeaway: For the second time this year, members of Congress have petitioned the Department of Justice to clarify whether or not the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to websites. While it was the Senate in September, back in June over 100 members of the House of Representatives urged Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the DOJ to clarify if private lawsuits against website owners violates legal due process, since there are no clear regulations in place. Originally set in motion to provide regulations this year, the Trump administration halted the rulemaking process in early 2017, leaving all parties in limbo. Since then, courts have split in deciding if accessibility requirements for private websites was a violation of due processes, such as finding for Dominoes and against Hobby Lobby in respective cases. Until we learn otherwise, we will continue to recommend meeting current accessibility standards if there is any question.
