Jim,
though I agree with you quite a bit here in regards to frivolous lawsuits; there is a part of this that seems to be missed that I perceive as important that I find somewhat challenging and creates some sympathy for the guy.

The guy had been working at the school since 1982 and based upon the article "can perform the essential functions of his position as Lead Groundsman with a reasonable accommodation such as verbal, instead of written instructions. …"

At his age, it would be safe to assume that the guy never got tested to determine if he has physical problems reading – ie dyslexia or such like - and many of these articles do miss some of the details. So who knows.

But the part that get's to me on this piece more than anything is that he had been doing the job, and doing it well for over 20 years- without a problem or hazard. That alone does speak volumes.

This would be interesting to see how it pans out.
