CUNA and the League of Southeastern Credit Unions and Affiliates (LSCU) filed a brief Tuesday in support of a credit union facing a predatory lawsuit alleging noncompliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The brief was filed in Scott v. The Infirmary FCU in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama.
“This brief was filed by CUNA and LSCU to continue our aggressive defense of credit unions hit with predatory lawsuits from plaintiffs’ attorneys looking to exploit a law that protects disabled Americans,” said CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle. “Credit unions unfortunately continue to see a string of meritless lawsuits taking advantage of ambiguities about what is required for website accessibility.

Patrick LaPine, LSCU president/CEO said the league stands with CUNA’s efforts on behalf of credit union facing these predatory lawsuits.
