Suing Website For ADA Violation Lawyer Tells SDNY Judge Koeltl Of Female Clothing But Male It Is

BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 3 – A website selling clothing has been sued in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York for excluding the visually impaired. But when SDNY Judge John G. Koeltl on January 27 asked the plaintiff's lawyer what kind of clothing the website sells, he replied that he thought it was women's clothing.

  Inner City Press was the only media in Judge Koeltl's courtroom, and hours later it visited the subject website. The top three photos were all of men's clothing. 

 The defendant through counsel said it wanted to file a motion to dismiss. But as Judge Koeltl pointed out, it is not permissible on such a motion to include an expert affidavit about changes made to make the site compliant with the ADA. So the case lives on. It is Calcano v. Aime Leon Dore, Inc., 19-cr-9712 (Koeltl).
