The California National Federation of the Blind filed a lawsuit against Target because their web site cannot be read by screen reading software. If you have had this problem while living or visiting California, you may be entitled to a settlement. This information was posted by Justice For All in their newsletter today. The full copy is below.
If you get a settlement you can send me some chocolate. (Just kidding.)

California National Federation of the Blind Wins
Lawsuit against Target
NFB's Target Lawsuit Settlement May Mean Money for You - Check out www.nfbtargetlawsuit.com
Are you legally blind? Have you tried to access the goods or services on Target.com using screen-reader software while you were in the State of California at any time between February 7, 2003 and December 9, 2008? Did you have trouble using that Web site? If so, you are probably eligible to receive up to $7,000.00 from Target under terms of their settlement with the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). However, you have to apply, and time is rapidly running out. To be eligible, you must fill out and submit a claim form by no later than January 8, 2009.
There are two ways to get the claim form. The easiest way is to go to www.nfbtargetlawsuit.com.
You will find the claim form, instructions, and other information. You may also request a claim form from: NFB v. Target Claims Administrator, RG2 Claims Administration LLC, P.O. Box 59479, Philadelphia, PA 19102-9479 (866-742-4955).
There is still time for you to submit your claim. The form may be submitted online by January 8, 2009, or mailed to the address above, postmarked by that date.
You do not have to be an NFB member to qualify.
