Judge Rules Ebay Not Covered By Americans With Disabilities Act

August 24, 2012
Source: Online Media Daily

U.S. District Court Judge Edward Davila in San Jose, Calif., ruled that the federal law -- which prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities -- does not apply to online companies like eBay. The 1990 statute says it applies to "places of public accommodation."
