“Like the seeing community, Plaintiff would like the opportunity to be able to use the … mobile website,” the Delmonico’s lawsuit states.
Lucius argues that she will continue to be denied equal access to the goods and services offered on Delmonico’s website until it is required to update it to make it fully accessible to blind and visually impaired individuals.
