May 19, 2022. San Francisco. SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Beverly Hills attorney Kousha Berokim has been indicted for an alleged scheme demanding monetary settlements from businesses to avoid Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) website lawsuits. Of note is Karlin Law Firm’s success in Defended over 110 such separate claims without our clients ever paying Kousha Berokim, or the Canon Law Firm, or his client any money. It’s sad to see other businesses paying him or his client settlement money. The San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin said among the grand jury charges Berokim faces were one for grand theft from an elder and 14 counts of grand theft by false pretense. The charges culminated from a nine-month investigation. See further discussion below.
March 18, 2022. Washington D.C. The Department of Justice (DOJ) announces “Guidance” but still no Guidelines, no rules, no regulation, no safe harbors, regarding how to make websites “compliant” under the ADA or even what websites are considered to be under the ADA, since the DOJ’s only reference is still to “places of public accommodation” which has been subject to different interpretations, particularly in the various New York 2d Circuit Courts, in Pennsylvania’s 3d Circuit Courts, and in California’s State Courts, compared to what is a growing majority view expressed most notably by California’s 9th Circuit. In the DOJ’s “Guidance”, again not “Guidelines”, the DOJ does not express an opinion on which of the Federal Courts it is following regarding the interpretation of a place of public accommodation. See the “Guidance” published on March 18, 2022 by the DOJ regarding ADA websites here.
