Credit unions across the country are being threatened with litigation from a handful of plaintiffs’ law firms seeking to profit from the ambiguities in requirements for website accessibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Many of these threats come from the Pacific Trial Attorneys, based in Newport Beach, CA. In recent weeks, credit unions have also received demand letters from “copycat” law firms.

Thursday, Jan. 18
Time: 3 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. ET
