Class action complaint filed against All Elite Wrestling, LLC for allegedly violating the Americans With Disabilities Act

AEW is dealing with a similar lawsuit that WWE had to settle a few years ago.

The class action lawsuit, filed on May 4th, alleges that All Elite Wrestling, LLC has denied equal access to the AEW Shop website. Plantiff Luigi Abreu claims that AEW has violated the Americans with Disabilities Act with its merchandise website.  The lawsuit notes Abreu is a visually-impaired and legally blind person who requires screen-reading software to read website content.

The lawsuit is alleging the website “is not equally accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers,” and is in violation of the ADA.

He is looking to bring this class action lawsuit “for declaratory relief, injunctive relief and compensatory damages—including statutory and punitive damages—against defendant named herein, and alleges based upon the personal knowledge of plaintiff, the investigation of counsel, and upon information and belief.”

The lawsuit notes the plaintiff attempted to transact business on the defendant’s website in April to purchase products, goods, and/or services. He wants a jury trial.

In the case involving WWE, the company settled it out of court for an undisclosed amount of money in 2020.
