Unfortunately, this is a "settlement" not a court win. No precident was
set. Again, unfortunately, American Airlines won their first round in
federal court about their web site. Depending on ADA for web accessability
isn't necessarily a winning stratedgy. I haven't heard how the appeals are
going on the american airlines case.
