Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit issues one Indiana opinion today
In Lloyd v. Swifty Transportation (SD Ind., Judge McKinney), a 16-page opinion, Judge Rovner writes:
Gerald Lloyd sued Swifty Trans- portation, where he worked as a truck driver for nearly seven years. He principally claimed that Swifty violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101-12213, by passing him over for promotion, disciplining him, paying him less than non-disabled drivers, and eventually forcing him to quit his job. Lloyd also claimed that Swifty violated the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), 29 U.S.C. §§ 2601-2654, by retaliating against him for taking medical leave. He further claimed that the company breached an agreement to interview him for future promotions. The district court granted summary judgment for Swifty on all claims. We affirm.
