Blind Man Sues Domino’s Pizza Over Non-Handicap Accessible Website, The Supreme Court Might Hear The Case

Domino’s Pizza has petitioned the Supreme Court to hear their case against Guillermo Robles, a blind man who is suing the company because their website is not accessible to blind people.

Robles filed a lawsuit against Domino’s three years ago, after he wasn’t able to order food on the company’s website. Robles says he tried using a screen reading software, but it was incompatible with Domino’s Pizza’s Website.

Robles claims businesses must accommodate people with disabilities not only in physical locations, but with websites and mobile apps as well, under the Americans with Disabilities Act. Domino’s argues there are not clear standards by the government on how websites and mobile apps should comply with ADA.

A federal appeals court has already agreed with Robles, but Domino’s has petitioned for the Supreme Court to pick up the case. However, the Supreme Court will not decide if they will take up the case until the fall, after they get back from summer recess.

“If businesses are allowed to say, ‘We do not have to make our websites accessible to blind people,’ that would be shutting blind people out of the economy in the 21st century,” Christopher Danielsen, a representative for the National Federation of the Blind told CNBC.

I guess the only thing you could do is have a warning that your website is not accessable to blind people.

  1. I’m all for empowering people, but some seem to regard disability as an asset – a victim stick with which to beat others.
    Makes it hard to argue against eugenics which I would normally oppose strongly.

  2. Thanks for the amusing report, Ed… but there’s no comment I could make on the arrogant self entitlement of this fuckwit.

  3. Mother superior tells two new nuns that they have to paint their room without getting any paint on their clothes.
    One nun suggests to the other, “Hey, let’s take all our clothes off, fold them up, and lock the door.”
    So they do this, and begin painting their room.
    Soon they hear a knock at the door. They ask, “Who is it?”
    “Blind man!” The nuns look at each other and one nun says, “He’s blind, so he can’t see. What could it hurt?”
    They let him in.
    The blind man walks in and says, “Hey, nice boobs. Where do you want me to hang the blinds?”
