Crown Alley ADA Lawsuit: Discrimination Case

Crown Alley, LLC Sued for Discrimination Against Visually Impaired Individuals

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted to ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to goods, services, and opportunities. However, many businesses still fail to comply with the ADA's requirements, denying individuals with disabilities the opportunity to fully participate in the internet economy. Crown Alley, LLC, the owner of Penrosebar.com, is one such company that has been accused of discriminating against visually impaired individuals.

Background

Randall Sanchez, a visually impaired individual, filed a lawsuit against Crown Alley, LLC, alleging that the company's website, Penrosebar.com, is not accessible to individuals with visual impairments. The plaintiff argues that the website does not comply with the ADA's requirements for accessibility, preventing him and other visually impaired individuals from fully participating in the internet economy and enjoying the services offered by Crown Alley.

Violations of the ADA

The ADA requires that all public websites and mobile apps be accessible to individuals with disabilities. This includes providing alternative text for images, audio descriptions for videos, and keyboard-navigable menus. However, Crown Alley's website, Penrosebar.com, allegedly does not comply with these requirements.

According to the lawsuit, the website's layout and design make it difficult for visually impaired individuals to navigate. The menu system is not keyboard-navigable, and the website's images lack alternative text descriptions, making it impossible for visually impaired individuals to understand the content. The lawsuit also alleges that the website's video content lacks audio descriptions, further excluding visually impaired individuals from accessing the information.

Impact on Visually Impaired Individuals

The inaccessibility of Penrosebar.com has a significant impact on visually impaired individuals, as it prevents them from fully participating in the internet economy. They are unable to access the services and information offered by Crown Alley, including online ordering, menu information, and location details. This exclusion not only violates their rights under the ADA but also denies them the opportunity to enjoy the services offered by Crown Alley.

Furthermore, the inaccessibility of Penrosebar.com perpetuates the stigma that individuals with disabilities are not important or valued customers. It sends a message that their business is not wanted or needed, further marginalizing an already vulnerable group.

Request for Injunction and Compensation

The lawsuit requests a permanent injunction to force changes in Crown Alley's policies and practices to make the website accessible. The plaintiff also seeks compensation for affected individuals, including damages for the harm suffered and attorney's fees.
