MIAMI – A blind man claims Papa John's website is not accessible to the visually impaired.
Andres Gomez filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on March 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida against Papa John's International Inc. and Papa John's USA Inc. alleging violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
