What started as a student suing target.com this time last year, has now grown into a class action lawsuit that just received certification from a federal court judge in California, Reuters reported.

"Judge Marilyn Patel of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California also rejected Target's motion for summary judgment in the case, according to the ruling filed October 2.

According to the ruling, plaintiffs -- including the National Federation of the Blind -- claim Target.com violates federal and state laws prohibiting discrimination against the disabled," Rueters stated.

Guess including alt tags takes on a whole new meaning now. I respect their battle and appreciate what they will do for overall optimization of websites in general.
