Ind. Decisions - 7th Circuit decides one Indiana case today
In Angelina Povey v. City of Jeffersonville (SD Ind., Young), an 11-page opinion, the Honorable Sharon Johnson Coleman, District Judge for the Northern District of Illinois, sitting by designation, writes:
Angelina Povey injured her wrist while working as an attendant at the City of Jeffersonville (“Jeffersonville”) animal shelter. Jeffersonville ultimately terminated Povey’s employ ment. Povey brought this action under 42 U.S.C. § 12101 alleging that her termination violated the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”). The district court granted Jeffersonville’s motion for summary judgment, finding that Povey does not qualify as “disabled” under the ADA. We affirm.
