Ryan,

Interesting read-up for you: http://www.nfbtargetlawsuit.com/final_settlement.html describing a six million dollars settlement between the Target Corp. and the National Federation of the Blind.

Thanks
Mike

How does one know when to file a complaint or lawsuit against a website for not being web accessible? I mean I wouldn't think one would file a lawsuit against a website that was just made by an individual for fun, but against a big name company website yes. So, where is the line in this?
