CINCINNATI (AP) - A decision by a federal judge on an agreement to settle a blind student’s lawsuit accusing Miami University in Ohio of using technology that presented a barrier to her education isn’t expected immediately.
Court documents show attorneys for Aleeha Dudley and Miami recently agreed on the main parts of a settlement but were to report to the judge Monday on remaining details. Attorneys say no final determination would be made Monday and no timetable was given for when to expect any final resolution.
Dudley’s 2014 lawsuit says course materials were inaccessible to her text-to-speech software and she hadn’t received material in forms she could use without help. It also said Miami violated federal law by failing to provide equal access.
The university denies it did anything wrong.
