Jacobs v. NC Administrative Office of the Courts
Firm partner Vanessa Lucas argued the Americans with Disabilities Act case at the Court of Appeals, after the trial court granted summary judgment for the defendants and dismissed the case. Vanessa, working with Disability Rights NC, convinced the 4th Circuit panel that her client deserves a trial on the merits of her claim that she was fired as a result of a legitimate disability after requesting a reasonable accommodation. The case is now pending in Federal District Court.
