According to The Hollywood Reporter, Conner, who has "no vision whatsoever," has asked the court for an injunction forcing Parkwood to revamp the site to comply with the ADA. Attorney Dan Shaked spoke for his client and said, "However, when she browsed the Beyonce.com website, she encountered numerous barriers which limited her accessibility to the goods and services offered on the website. There are many important pictures on Beyonce.com that lack a text equivalent. ... As a result, Plaintiff and blind Beyonce.com customers are unable to determine what is on the website, browse the website or investigate and/or make purchases."
