March 6, 2013
Source: Lexology

A new class action complaint was filed against BB&T last week in federal court in Atlanta alleging that two of BB&T’s ATMs did not meet the accessibility features that are mandated by the ADA. Thomas v. Branch Banking and Trust Company, U.S. District Court, Northern District of Georgia, Civil Action No. 1:13-cv-00656. The lawsuit was filed by a plaintiff who states that she is a blind individual that was denied access to two ATMs because the ATMs had no voice-guidance feature, no Braille instructions for initiating speech mode, and the function keys did not have the required tactile symbols. The lawsuit seeks an injunction and payment of costs and attorneys’ fees.
