Law suites are important to business, but you can't protect yourself
against everything, you can only perform due diligence. If in court I
can show that I took due diligence your law suite will fail.
 
The question here is what constitutes due diligence? A set of fuzzy,
unquantifiable guidelines that are subject to interpretation do more to
harm accessibility than they do to assist it. As clients will not
understand what it means and then the standards will get ignored...
