Robles v Domino’s Ends in Settlement After Six Years of Litigation

After years of litigation, the parties in Robles v. Domino’s decided to settle. The terms of the settlement are not public. However, there are a few takeaways from this case that are important for business owners to know:

  1. The Ninth Circuit affirmed that to be covered by the ADA, a website or mobile app must have a nexus to a physical place of public accommodation
  2. A 24/7 toll-free phone line may be a way to provide access as an alternative to an accessible app or website.
  3. The Supreme Court declined to review the Ninth Circuit’s decision.
  4. The parties spent tens of thousands of dollars litigating a case that likely could have been settled at the beginning for a relatively low dollar settlement amount.
