DOJ Postpones Plans for Website Accessibility Rulemaking

Website accessibility is no longer a top priority for the Department of Justice, according to the Trump administration's recently released rulemaking agenda for the remainder of 2017 and 2018. DOJ had announced previously that it would propose regulations in 2018 regarding website accessibility under Titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act. However, these actions were categorized as “inactive” on the updated rulemaking schedule and no longer reflect a target date.

While DOJ may no longer be actively pursuing new website accessibility standards, ABA encourages its members to continue to work toward accessibility, as plaintiffs’ attorneys will likely continue to pursue lawsuits against companies with inaccessible websites.
