Re: A new type of ADA law suit

This is the same client. This particular ADA requirement only applies to hotels, guest houses and similar businesses, so its impact is relatively limited. There probably aren't all that many UK-owned hotels in the US.

However, it is likely that there are other sector-specific ADA requirements for other sectors. I have trawled through more ADA legislation than any non-lawyer should have to, yet I still can't tell if there are more requirements that I have not yet found. It would be nice if it is all summarised somewhere - maybe it is and I've not found it.

Is this the same client you wrote about in WebAIM last summer - a UK based company? If so this has considerable implications for UK and European companies trading in the US.
