Statement of Interest of the United States of America in Opposition to Defendant Netflix's Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings
May 15, 2012
Statement of Interest of the United States of America in Opposition to Defendant Netflix’s Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings
The U.S. Department of Justice submits this Statement of Interest because this litigation implicates the interpretation and application of Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The Plaintiffs are an individual who is deaf and two advocacy organizations serving the interests of persons who are deaf or hard of hearing, who allege that Netflix has violated the ADA by failing to provide closed captioning on the vast majority of the movie and television titles offered on its “Watch Instantly” on-demand streaming video service, as well as equal access to other services offered to Netflix members.
