Jakubowski v. Christ Hosp. Inc., 6th Cir., No. 09-4097, December 8, 2010.

Articles Discussing Case:

Plaintiff must request an accommodation that allows him to perform the essential functions of the job in order to support ADA claim.

Ogletree Deakins • December 13, 2010
A medical resident with Asperger’s Disorder was unable to meet his burden, in his ADA lawsuit against his hospital employer, that he was “otherwise qualified” for his position. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld summary judgment in favor of the hospital, because the resident’s requested accommodation - that the hospital physician and staff be educated on the symptoms and triggers of Asperger’s - did not address the key obstacle preventing him from performing a necessary function of his job, or resolve his inability to fulfill his responsibilities as a hospital resident.
