The Justice Department has completed an agreement with Miami University to resolve allegations in a blind student's lawsuit that it violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.

A judge must approve a consent decree that requires Miami to provide people with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the school's services, programs and activities. The decree grew from a lawsuit filed in 2014 by Aleeha Dudley, who accused Miami of using technology that presented a barrier to her education.
