Kristen Perkins Discusses the "Surge" of ADA Lawsuits against Banks with American Banker

June 5, 2018

Hinshaw partner Kristen Perkins was quoted in an American Banker article titled "Banks are sitting ducks for ADA lawsuits." The article discusses the suits brought against fifty-one banks in 2018 alleging their websites violate the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

"Plaintiff's attorneys are using software specifically designed to detect website flaws," Perkins said,"[if] they find any level of noncompliance, then you can be sued."

Perkins and colleague David Levitt are scheduled to present a compliance webinar on June 5, 2018. They will explore copyright law as applied to website and content ownership, ADA compliance, and other business website compliance issues.
