Court Victory in Wa State

Owners of movie theaters in Washington state are discriminating against deaf moviegoers, according to a state appeals court. A panel of the Washington Court of Appeals in Seattle agreed with a legal challenge by the Washington State Communication Access Project, calling on Regal, AMC, and Cinemark to do more to provide closed captioning for deaf patrons. The court said it is a violation of state law to not make closed captioning technology more available.
