This email is to update the list regarding the NFB v. Target web
accessibility litigation.

Today the judge in the matter has issued her opinion regarding the motion to
certify a class action. The motion has been granted and now moves forward
as a class action on behalf of persons who are blind in California and in
the United States who have attempted to access the Target.com website and as
a result have been denied access to the enjoyment of goods and services
offered in Target stores.

ICDRI will post the opinion once permission has been granted for us to post

Best regards,
Cynthia Waddell
