Re: No decision from the Appeals court

Jim,
I notice that you make no mention of the EU in this? Americans are in a
minority on this planet - and these days a minority on the Web. If the ADA
applies to Websites, which ones does it apply to?

You state here that the ADA already applies, but this is just as ill-informed
as the general media comment - the latest court case declined to make that
decision. The earlier New York cases that you refer to were (I believe)
settled out of court, so do not come close to confirming your contention that
computer code is analagous to bricks-and-mortar.

Your comments about IBM seem fairly obviously wrong to me. When any company
is forced to change its procedures for one part of its business, it is
perfectly normal for it to standardise those procedures across the company,
unless there is a pressing reason to do otherwise - as you said yourself,
this has nothing to do with the ADA which after fourteen years has yet to be
used.

PS what are 'curb cuts'?

Mike
