See's Candies Sued — There's None So Blind as Those Who Will Not See's
See’s Candies has the nerve to tout the word “See’s” … when it denies that fundamental right to those with sight impairments … so a sight-impaired man claims in a new lawsuit.
Juan Carlos Gil loves his chocolate and often shops online for his favorite confections. Problem is … he loves See’s but the company’s website makes it impossible for him to get what he wants. You see, there’s software disabled people can download to their computer which converts text into audio.
Gil claims See’s website is antiquated and cannot interface with the software, and he believes it’s a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
So, Gil has filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of sight-impaired people who lust for a box of chocolates.
