Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is being interpreted to include websites as “places of public accommodation”
Websites with significant inaccessible components can be seen as discriminatory against persons with disabilities, in violation of Title III of the ADA
The ADA is a strict liability law which means there are no excuses/defenses for violations (e.g. ignorance, web developer is working on it, etc.)
No current legal prescription exists for web accessibility for private entities in the U.S. but WCAG 2.0 AA is frequently referenced by courts
