This email is to update the list regarding the NFB v. Target web accessibility litigation.
Today the judge in the matter has issued her opinion regarding the motion to certify a class action. The motion has been granted and now moves forward as a class action on behalf of persons who are blind in California and in the United States who have attempted to access the Target.com website and as a result have been denied access to the enjoyment of goods and services offered in Target stores.
