Netflix not Bound by ADA

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) - The Americans with Disabilities Act does not apply to Netflix because the service is not connected to an "actual, physical place," the 9th Circuit ruled Thursday.

In a short unpublished opinion, the three-judge panel held that Donald Cullen's claims for ADA violations "fail as a matter of law."

The panel also ruled that Cullen's putative class action failed to allege any injury directly resulting from Netflix's business practices. It affirmed Northern District of California's dismissal.
