The Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT) and Texas Bankers Association (TBA) have reached a settlement with Access Now, Inc. (“Access Now”), the disability rights group that, along with individuals affiliated with it, has delivered demand letters to many IBAT and TBA members alleging inadequate website accessibility to visually-impaired persons, and has filed two lawsuits against members asserting claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”).

A number of these suits have already been filed and, up until now, they have involved types of business other than financial institutions (e.g., retailers). It is only a matter of time before suits are filed against banks.
