  • Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit in which a woman alleged she was unfairly barred from shopping at Walmart during an hour set aside for disabled individuals during the COVID-19 pandemic, ruling that she has not alleged violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
