LOS ANGELES (5/11/09)--A class action suit has been filed against a credit union based in Santa Clara, Calif., by the Disability Rights Advocates (DRA), alleging discrimination against deaf consumers. The suit, filed in Alameda County against KeyPoint CU, a $837.3 million asset credit union, alleges the credit union refused to accept telephone relay service calls from deaf members and potential members (AllHeadlineNews May 7). The suit said the credit union "repeatedly refused" to accept the calls and engaged in "systemic civil rights violations" in violation of state and federal anti-discrimination laws. The $837.3 million asset credit union serves high-technology workers. DRA is a non-profit group based in California.
