Guillermo Robles is the man who is suing Dominos pizza for one of the most ridiculous things I’ve heard since suing McDonald’s because their food made them fat, or because they burned themselves on hot coffee not knowing it was hot.
Robles is in the process of suing the pizza chain because its website and mobile app were not accessible to people with disabilities such as himself.
This is a lawsuit that has been going on for three years now after he was unable to order a pizza. The guy could have just picked up the phone and called it in, but who am I, right?
Instead, this snowflake decided that Domino’s has hurt his feelings and he needs to be paid a lot of money for his suffering.
The man has now gained some more leverage because the U.S. Supreme Court denied the appeal by Domino’s which will ultimately push this lawsuit to trial.
Guillermo Robles said in the suit filed three years ago in Los Angeles that he had been unable to order a pizza because Domino’s website lacked a reading software he used on other sites, Bloomberg reported.
He argued he was unable to order a pizza without the software he normally used. It worked only when a website’s graphics had “alt-text,” a description of the image that appeared on the screen when a cursor floated over it.
Without it, Robles said he was unable to order a customized pizza or use discounts offered exclusively online. Domino’s argued the law applied to its store but not its website.
The ADA “does not demand full accessibility for each and every means of accessing the goods or services a public accommodation provides to the public,” the company argued in its appeal. What matters was the “combined means of access to those goods or services,” executives said.
