During 2008, public interest attorneys representing the American Council of the Blind (ACB), the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB), the California Council of the Blind (CCB), and the Bay State Council of the Blind (BSCB) used structured negotiation to establish a settlement agreement with Dollar General.
