Nuts.com class action alleges website inaccessible to blind, visually impaired consumers
Shivan Bassaw, a visually impaired individual, filed a class action lawsuit against Nuts.com, alleging the website makes it impossible for visually impaired or blind individuals to complete a transaction.
Bassaw claims he wanted to purchase products from Nuts.com but could not because the website is not compatible with screen-reading software. He says that because of the Nuts.com website’s visually dominant design and coding flaws, the website discriminates against blind or visually impaired individuals, violating the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The lawsuit claims technology is available that makes it possible for blind people to use websites.
