Yes, it does not apply to private sector, only public sector (not just
federal, though). However, this thread is about how Target (private
sector) may be liable for having a website that does not comply with
the Americans with Disabilities Act. Just because your company is in
the private sector does not mean it can ignore accessibility
standards, and the current case with Target may end up proving that.
