  • ADA Amendments Act Lawsuit – Kirk Jenkins v. The National Board of Medical Examiners (Day in Washington Policy Podcast #35) | Day In Washington
    had been interpreting the ADA Kirk Jenkins case is exactly why disability advocates fought so hard for the legislation Relying on the older Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky Inc v Williams law case the district court found that Kirk did not qualify as disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act The court had pressed Kirk pushing him to demonstrate how his reading difficulties limited his ability to perform tasks central to most people s daily lives The court focused on such activities as reading menus and newspapers all things which he COULD do although slowly The court even said and let me quote directly here that t here is ample evidence that Jenkins processes written words slowly and that his condition prevents him from succeeding where success is measured by one s ability to read under time pressure But Jenkins inability to identify meaningful tasks central to most people s daily lives that he is precluded from performing due to his condition must be fatal to his claim of disability under the ADA So basically they were saying Yes he has a disability that is going to prevent him from becoming a doctor without an accommodation but it isn t THAT bad he isn t really substantially limited so he isn t REALLY disabled after all But the story doesn t end there Kirk Jenkins didn t give up He took his case to the United States Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit The key is that the entire lawsuit would be decided on whether Kirk Jenkins was disabled because he had substantial limitation In the ADA Amendments Act Congress made clear that it intended for the ADA to give broad protection to persons with disabilities and that in the past courts had incorrectly found in individual cases that people with a range of substantially limiting impairments were not people with disabilities The Appeals Court acknowledged that the ADA Amendments Act rejects the way the courts had used the older Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky Inc v Williams lawsuit s strict standard to decide if someone had a disability under the ADA and then the Appeals court decided that for this lawsuit the newer ADA Amendments Act should be used Although that doesn t sound like a big deal it is What the court did was apply this NEW legislation on a lawsuit that happened BEFORE the legislation ever passed Applying law retroactively is something that is rarely done Think about it as an example lets say all January you would sing while brushing your teeth and then in February Congress passed a law making it illegal to sing while brushing your teeth and then the police came to arrest you for your January singing Doesn t quite make sense does it The Appeals court explains it by saying that rather than seeking damages for some past act of discrimination by the National Board of Medical Examiners what Kirk Jenkins was doing was seeking the right to receive an accommodation on
