Audio File of Oral Argument in Currency Case

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) presented oral arguments on the morning of October 19th before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. This followed ACB’s appeal concerning a recent District Court ruling that upheld last year’s determination by the Department of the Treasury to push back the first accessible U.S. currency to 2026, almost double the anticipated projected time from when ACB won its case against the government in 2008. The hearing focused on concerns raised by the Department of Treasury’s inability to provide an adequate solution that provides meaningful access within a reasonable timeline.
