Website Accessibility Claim Rendered Moot by Previous Website Modifications

We’ve published links to a number of cases involving ADA violations related to inaccessible websites. The case of Diaz v. The Kroger Co. is different from many we’ve covered. The United States District Court of the Southern District of New York granted Kroger’s motion to dismiss because the defendant had already made adequate modifications to the site and because the defendant did not sell goods or services in New York. Unlike other website accessibility cases, Kroger had already brought its website into compliance under WCAG standards before the suit was filed. Also, the Plaintiff in the case lived in New York where Kroger did not sell through the website any goods or services. Read more about how the court addressed the mootness argument in this case.
