In a post entitled, “Is There a Private Cause of Action for Violations of § 508 of the Rehabilitation Act?,” William Goren discusses a D.C. Circuit appellate decision in a TRE Legal Practice case, Orozco v. Garland, 60 F.4th 684 (D.C. Cir. 2023), that went in our client’s favor. The decision established that, under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. § 794d, there is indeed
a private cause of action, admittedly one for injunctive relief due to sovereign immunity, on behalf of a member of the public or an employee of the federal government who runs into an issue with the technology being utilized by the federal government being inaccessible to them.
The case was then remanded back to the lower court. The full trial court docket is available via CourtListener.
