Richardson v. Friendly Ice Cream Corp., No. 08-2423
In plaintiff's action against her former employer claiming discrimination in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Maine Human Rights Act by failing to accommodate her disability and by terminating her employment because of the disability, judgment in favor of defendant-employer is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff failed to present sufficient evidence for a reasonable jury to find that she is a "qualified individual" within the meaning of the ADA; and 2) plaintiff's interactive process claim fails as the two accommodations she identified are, on the record, inadequate to enable her to perform a sufficiently broad range of manual tasks and unreasonable as a matter of law.
