Howard A. Rosenblum, CEO of the National Association of the Deaf (NAD), agreed: “Muse Paintbar has federal and state obligations to ensure that its programs and services are accessible to all, including deaf and hard of hearing people. It is unfortunate that a lawsuit is necessary to make sure Muse Paintbar follows these laws.” Prior to filing suit, the NAD wrote to Muse Paintbar to make clear their legal obligations and to again request interpreters on Cunningham’s behalf, but Muse did not respond.
Cunningham is represented by the National Association of the Deaf and Stein & Vargas, LLP.
The National Association of the Deaf is the nation’s premier civil rights organization of, by, and for, deaf and hard of hearing individuals in the United States.
