WWE is dealing with a lawsuit from Josue Romero.
The lawsuit, which was filed on October 6th in the Southern District of New York, is alleging that WWE has denied equal access to the WWE Shop website.
Romero claims that WWE has violated the Americans with Disabilities Act with their merchandise website. In the lawsuit, courtesy of HeelByNature, it notes, “Romero is a visually-impaired and legally blind person who requires screen-reading software to read website content using his computer.”
The lawsuit is alleging the website “is not equally accessible to blind and visually-impaired consumers,” and is in violation of the ADA.
As a result, Romero wants WWE to change policies and procedures to make sure the website will become available to blind and visually-impaired consumers.
Romero hopes to take the case to trial with a jury to determine the outcome. He is also asking to have his legal costs covered.
