Eleventh Circuit Decision in Gil v. Winn-Dixie Deepens Circuit Split on ADA Applicability to Websites

April 17, 2021 | by | Internet Law

A divided Eleventh Circuit panel in Gil v. Winn-Dixie Stores recently held that websites are not “public accommodations” for purposes of enforcement under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ruling highlights a deep split between the Circuits that appears ripe for resolution by the highest court in the land. Although the Supreme Court recently refused to take on the issue in a case out of the 9th Circuit (Robles v Domino’s Pizza), perhaps this is the case that finally spurs the Supreme Court to act on this important question.
