Defendant Blick Art Materials, LLC’s website, Dickblick.com, is “difficult, if not impossible” for blind customers to use, a New York man claims in a proposed class action lawsuit. The case, which cites alleged violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), alleges the defendant’s website contains accessibility barriers for which blind people “must rely on sighted companions to assist them in accessing and buying products on Dickblick.com.”
The proposed class covered by the lawsuit include all legally blind individuals in the U.S. who have attempted to access the defendant’s site and “as a result have been denied access to the enjoyment of goods and services offered in Blick Stores.”
