ADA Cause of Action Stated For Fired Firefighter Who Attempted Suicide

From the Oct. 2, 2012 Daily Labor Report:

A new trial is warranted on a former firefighter's claim that Erie, Pa., discriminated based on her mental impairment when it terminated her after severe depression drove her to start a fire indoors as part of a suicide attempt, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania ruled Sept. 28 ( Wolski v. Erie, W.D. Pa., No. 1:08-cv-00289, 9/28/12 ).
