: SOCOG was ordered to engage the following by 15 September 2000:
including alt text on all images and image map links on its Web site
providing access to the Index of Sports from the Schedule page
providing access to the Results Tables to be used on the Web site during the Sydney Olympic Games
SOCOG refused to comply with the order and was later ordered to pay Bruce Maguire for its refusal to comply.
The Maguire case set a firm worldwide precedent that inaccessible Web sites can be and are illegal.
