Credit unions win in 6th circuit!
Posted August 27, 2019 by CUNA Advocacy

The 6th Circuit just issued an opinion in the ADA website accessibility case they heard earlier this month – it’s a victory! The court reversed the District Court and held the plaintiff does not have standing because she did not suffer an injury-in-fact. Stay tuned for further analysis of the opinion.

Earlier this month, CUNA, along with the Ohio Credit Union League, attended arguments before a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati. The cases are Brintley v. Aeroquip CU and Brintley v. Belle River Community Credit Union, two Michigan-based credit unions hit with frivolous lawsuits claiming website noncompliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

CUNA filed amicus briefs with the Michigan Credit Union League supporting the credit unions’ appeal of the denial of their motion to dismiss.
