Stone on Osaka & the ADA
Kerri Stone (FIU) has a terrific post over at PrawfsBlawg using Naqomi Osaka's withdrawal from the French Open to analyze the issue of "what would happen if someone who claim[ed] that depression, anxiety, or another mental impairment rendered them disabled within the meaning of the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), were to be fired from a job or excluded from an event after they refused to participate in a requirement that they deemed too corrosive to their mental health"?
I thought about excerpting Kerri's post here, but her post is so dense and well-written that there's nothing I would omit. So ... I strongly recommend following the link above and reading it in full.
