The U.S. Supreme Court overturned a lower court’s ruling that allowed a Florida woman, Deborah Laufer, to sue a Maine hotel for failing to disclose accessible features on its reservation website.

Laufer, who is visually impaired and uses a wheelchair, had no intention of making a reservation at the hotel.

The justices unanimously found the case moot and dismissed it. (Trending: Biden Impeachment Vote Comes To House Floor)

Laufer claimed the hotel violated federal regulations mandating accessibility information in reservation systems under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The case raised questions about legal standing to sue in federal court.

Laufer withdrew her lawsuit after a lawyer’s discipline and the hotel updated its website.

“We might exercise our discretion differently in a future case,” wrote Justice Amy Coney Barrett.

The Supreme Court’s decision and related cases, including those involving the U.S. Capitol riot and social media, are being closely watched.
