After years of litigation, the parties in Robles v. Domino’s decided to settle. The terms of the settlement are not public. However, there are a few takeaways from this case that are important for business owners to know:
- The Ninth Circuit affirmed that to be covered by the ADA, a website or mobile app must have a nexus to a physical place of public accommodation
- A 24/7 toll-free phone line may be a way to provide access as an alternative to an accessible app or website.
- The Supreme Court declined to review the Ninth Circuit’s decision.
- The parties spent tens of thousands of dollars litigating a case that likely could have been settled at the beginning for a relatively low dollar settlement amount.
