Ekstrand v. Sch. Dist. of Somerset, No. 09-1853
In plaintiff's lawsuit against her former employer claiming that the school district failed to accommodate her seasonal effective disorder and constructively discharged her in violation of the ADA, judgment of the district court is reversed in part and affirmed in part where: 1) district court's grant of summary judgment on the failure-to-accommodate claim is reversed as plaintiff satisfied all three elements required for the claim; and 2) district court's grant of summary judgment on the constructive-discharge claim is affirmed as plaintiff failed to show that the conditions of her employment even approached the intolerable levels normally required in constructive-discharge cases.
