Royal Attorneys Achieve Summary Judgment

Published:  April 1, 2017

Royal attorneys achieved summary judgment on behalf of a regional not-for-profit organization in federal court.  The court dismissed both the Americans with Disabilities Act claim and its state counterpart finding that Defendant had no knowledge a disability even existed.  While Defendant knew Plaintiff had health problems, the court agreed with our position that knowledge of a health problem is not the same as knowing someone suffers from a disability.  On this ground alone, we successfully persuaded the court to dismiss the state and federal disability discrimination claims.
