D.C. Circuit Clarifies ADA Causation Standard

Franczek Radelet P.C • December 20, 2011
On December 9, 2011, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit affirmed a lower court’s entry of judgment in favor of George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences (GWU) on claims brought by Carolyn Singh, a former medical student, for violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in Singh v. George Washington Univ. Sch. of Med. & Health Scis. This recent decision, the second D.C. Circuit decision in the Singh case, offers valuable guidance to higher education institutions with regard to accommodation of students with learning disabilities.
