Over the past few weeks, our Title III Specialty Team contributed to the following pieces:

The site LXBN.com interviewed Seyfarth’s ADA Title III Team leader Minh Vu for an article about a pending lawsuit brought by an advocacy organization for the deaf against seven Hollywood movie studios for failing to provide closed captioning for lyrics of songs in motion pictures. The suit highlights the uncertain legal landscape on the digital frontier.

Lodging industry publication Hotel News Now featured Minh Vu’s practical advice on some thorny service animal questions that hotels often face. Service animal issues are not new, but businesses continue to grapple with them every day.

Last, but not least, a Cato Institute blog post recently referenced our post “Justice Department Delays Web Accessibility Regulations For At Least Three More Years, Leaving Businesses in Turmoil.”

We appreciate being your resource for ADA Title III disability access developments, and will continue to keep you updated.

The Wall Street Journal last week published two stories about Title III of the ADA after obtaining insights from various sources, including our ADA Title III Team leader, Minh Vu.  The story concerning the surge in ADA Title III lawsuits cited to Seyfarth’s labor intensive research which we reported earlier this year. The companion story about the anticipated rise in ADA Title III cases concerning the accessibility of websites to people with disabilities included thoughts from Ms. Vu about the impact of the DOJ’s recent enforcement action against H&R Block.
