CASE ENTRY

Sierra v. City of Hallandale Beach, Florida

Deaf man alleges that four Hallandale Beach, Fla. websites fail to provide the closed captioning required by federal statute. District court: Only one of the four websites belongs to the city. (One is Facebook.) And anyway, the man had to file a FCC complaint before filing suit. Case dismissed. Eleventh Circuit: Vacated. There’s no need to file a complaint first. (But if indeed three of the sites are not run by the city, those claims can’t go.)
