Daily Digest – June 22. Bill Introduced to Prohibit Student Loan Cancellations; Court Certifies Class in ADA Suit Over Site’s Inaccessibility

BILL INTRODUCED IN HOUSE TO PROHIBIT CANCELLATION, FORGIVENESS OF STUDENT LOANS

  • A bill has been introduced in the House of Representatives that, if enacted, would prohibit the federal government from cancelling or forgiving federal student loans because the government does not have the authority to do so and because it’s “unfair for taxpayers who paid student loans or did not attend college to pay for those who chose to take student loans,” according to a copy of the bill.

COURT CERTIFIES CLASS IN ADA SUIT OVER SITE’S LACK OF ACCESSIBILITY

  • This particular case is not directly related to the accounts receivable management industry, but someone from the industry did forward it to me and this is a topic that has popped up from time to time, so this can serve as a refresher to everyone who hasn’t checked their websites recently to make sure they are accessible to individuals with disabilities, including those who are visually impaired, in order to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. A District Court judge in Pennsylvania has certified a class action against an online retailer after a plaintiff said the retailer’s website was not able to be accessed by his screen reader or other auxiliary aids.
