    Funimation Sued in Class-Action Lawsuit for Allegations of Violating Americans with Disabilities Act

    Jenisa Angeles, a legally blind person, filed a class-action lawsuit against Funimation Global Group, LLC on January 13 on behalf of herself "and all others similarly situated" alleging that Funimation's website violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. The lawsuit was filed in the District Court of the Southern District of New York.

    The lawsuit claims that Funimation has failed "to design, construct, maintain, and operate its website to be fully accessible to and independently usable by [Angeles] and other blind or visually-impaired people," which it claims is a violation of her rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The website referred to in the lawsuit is specifically the "shop.funimation.com" website.

    The lawsuit states that Angeles is "a visually-impaired and legally blind person, who cannot use a computer without the assistance of screen-reading software," and is proficient at using the "NonVisual Desktop Access" screen-reading software. Angeles reportedly visited the "shop.funimation.com" website on multiple occasions (including in January) to make a purchase, but was "denied a shopping experience similar to that of a sighted individual due to the website's lack of a variety of features and accommodations, which effectively barred [her] from being able to determine what specific products were offered for sale."

    Specifically, the lawsuit claims that features on the site lacked alt. text and failed to "Add a label element or title attribute for each field." Additionally, the lawsuit stated pages on the site contained the same title elements and the site contained broken links. The lawsuit states that Funimation has therefore "engaged in acts of intentional discrimination."

    The lawsuit asks for a permanent injunction that requires Funimation to "retain a qualified consultant acceptable to" Angeles to assist Funimation to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) for its website. The World Wide Web Consortium maintains the WCAG.

    Sony-owned Funimation is latest to make move to Cypress Waters mega-development

    The animation company is now based in Flower Mound.

    By Steve Brown
    4:10 PM on Nov 5, 2020

    A Flower Mound-based subsidiary of global giant Sony is headed to the booming Cypress Waters development northwest of Dallas.

    Funimation, an animation company that’s largely owned by Sony Corp, is planning a 38,000-square-foot office near Belt Line Road north of LBJ Freeway in the Cypress Waters project.

    Funimation is now at 1200 Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound.

    Sony Pictures Television in 2017 paid more than $140 million for a 95% stake in the animation company. Last year, it combined Funimation, France-based Wakanim and Australia’s Madman Anime Group into one operating group. Under the new agreement, Funimation will acquire animation content from Japan and distribute it globally.

    Funimation is working with Dallas architect Corgan to design its new Cypress Waters offices, according to filings with the state.

    The new office is set to open early next year in developer Billingsley Co.'s new 3501 Olympus office building in Cypress Waters. The five-story, 200,000-square-foot office building is one of two new additions to the 1,000-acre Cypress Waters development.

    About 150,000 square feet is left to lease in the building.

    Caliber Home Loans, Goosehead Insurance and Artisan Design Group are also tenants in the same two-building office complex.

    Cypress Waters is already home to a growing roster of companies, including 7-Eleven, CoreLogic, Nokia, Brinker International, Mr. Cooper, Toyota Industries Commercial Finance, BT America and Constellation Brands.
