Fleming v. Yuma Reg. Med. Ctr., No. 07-16427

By FindLaw Staff on November 19, 2009 3:23 PM

In an action for employment discrimination based on plaintiff's disability, summary judgment for defendant is reversed where Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. section 794, extends to a claim of discrimination brought by an independent contractor because the Rehabilitation Act covers all individuals "subject to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."
