McGann v. Cinemark USA, Inc., 16-2160

Vacating and remanding a judgment by the trial court that held that a movie theater could not be made to provide blind and deaf patrons with a tactile American Sign Language interpreter, reasoning that this would not be an auxiliary aid or service under the Americans with Disabilities Act and that the Act didn't require them to change the content of their services or provide 'special' services to the disabled because the court held that such an interpreter would qualify as an auxiliary aid or service and the failure to provide one excluded or denied those with disabilities from the theater's services.
