National Association of the Deaf sues Harvard & MIT

https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2015/02/13/national-association-deaf-sues-harvard-mit

"The National Association of the Deaf on Thursday sued Harvard
University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, saying the
institutions violate the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and
the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 by not captioning all of the course
content they make available online. Some of the content, NAD said,
relies on automatic captions provided by Web sites such as YouTube,
which sometimes produce unintelligible captions depending on audio
clarity, while other videos don't offer captions at all. The cases are
filed in a federal district court in Massachusetts."

See Inside Higher Ed's report of a similar suit regarding sports
scoreboards.  Anyone know how that turned out?

Is any other litigation in the works?
