Class Action Lawsuit on ATM Standards under the ADA

Recently, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas permitted a class action lawsuit to proceed against a bank regarding ATM standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the Hunter v. First United Bank & Trust Company case; the district court denied the bank’s motion to dismiss the plaintiff’s class action complaint. In the lawsuit, plaintiffs argued that the bank’s ATMs did not meet the new ADA standards that became effective in March 2012.
