Rashawn Manigan v. Southwest Ohio Regional Transit Authority

Plaintiff asserted claims of disability discrimination under federal and state law, claiming that his employer failed to accommodate his alleged disability.  We moved for summary judgment, arguing that our client had reasonably accommodated the plaintiff and that it was not obligated to provide the specific accommodation sought by the plaintiff because this would require our client to violate its collective bargaining agreement with the union representing its employees.  The court granted summary judgment for our client.  The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed.
