my first reaction as well, BUT technically they are breaking the laws regarding ADA. at some point someone was going to figure it out and seek a payday. my guess, however is that internet isn't required to follow the same rules as broadcast tv and hopefully he loses

A couple quotes from Fox news

Quote:
Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub, which hosts millions of adult videos, claiming the site's lack of subtitles violates the rights of deaf and hearing impaired under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in areas of "employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government programs and services," according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
So he says no closed captioned comment.

The VP of PH commented
Quote:
Pornhub vice president Corey Price -- who says the company usually doesn't comment on pending litigation -- responded to the allegations.

"We understand that Yaroslav Suris is suing Pornhub for claiming weve denied the deaf and hearing-impaired access to our videos," he told the outlet. "While we do not generally comment on active lawsuits, wed like to take this opportunity to point out that we do have a closed captions category."
So what might be his reason for suing?

Quote:
Suris is reportedly also seeking damages, the outlet said.
So a person with a disability found a "get rich quick and easy" scheme

BTW Jeff, he's not "disabled". He's "differently abled" and I agree he is just seeking to hit the "lawsuit lottery".

Is there a category where there is someone interpreting using sign language?

I want to sue Pornhub too. For false advertising.

Lesbians don't look like that
Babysitters won't do that
Naked women don't pay for pizzas
