I don't begrudge libraries buying thing for people with disabilities. Don't begrudge libraries buying things for people who aren't blind.
What the ruling means is that there will be no eink readers purchased and thus, no way for libraries to be able to show them off to patrons or use them to help patrons with questions.
I think whoever complained is a mean person who should be banned from libraries.
