Miami U in Ohio Settles Accessibility Lawsuit

January 19, 2016

A student who in 2014 sued Miami University in Ohio over inaccessible educational materials last week reached a settlement with the institution, according to court documents. Aleeha Dudley, who is blind, alleged in the lawsuit that the university violated Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 by not offering her equal access to course materials such as digitized textbooks and software compatible with screen readers. The U.S. Department of Justice in 2015 joined Dudley's lawsuit against the university.
