Beyonce.com at center of class action litigation

It is common for customers and potential customers to find issues with certain ways in which companies do business. In some cases, the issues could potentially affect a considerable number of people, and if the alleged problem is significant enough, class action litigation could result. If so, companies will need to determine the best way to handle such lawsuits.

Florida readers may be interested in a class action lawsuit that was recently filed in another state. According to reports, the lawsuit was filed against Parkwood Entertainment, which is a company owned by Beyonce Knowles. The suit claims that the company's website discriminates against individuals with visual impairments because the site does not provide any alternative text, or alt-text, to go along with elements of the website. This alt-text is often helpful to visually impaired individuals because it provides descriptions of images or elements that can be read to them.

The suit resulted from the claims of one woman who is reportedly completely blind. Her lawsuit suggests that it is nearly impossible for blind and visually-impaired people to use the website, which the suit claims violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. Neither Parkwood Entertainment nor Beyonce Knowles issued a statement regarding the lawsuit at the time of the report.

Class action litigation can take a tremendous toll on a company. Florida business owners who are facing this type of lawsuit will undoubtedly want to make sure that they find the best avenues for addressing claims made against their companies. Experienced legal counsel can help these parties understand their options and how to mitigate the repercussions of this type of predicament.
