Teacher who suffers from fear of children files claim under Americans With Disabilities Act

Leave a comment

This is from Liberty UnYielding.

When George H. W. Bush signed this bill into law, I said it would open the door for abuse and it is a bad law.

I have been proven right many times since this law was signed.

Thankfully the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Ohio rejected the attempt by  Maria Waltherr-Willard to line her pockets using this bad law.

Maria Waltherr-Willard

 

A person with pedophobia, a fear of young children, suing the school that employed her is akin to a child who murders his parents, then throws himself on the mercy of the courts on the grounds that he is an orphan.

Granted, the case of Maria Waltherr-Willard, a foreign-language teacher, is somewhat more complicated than that. According to Cincinnati ABC affiliate KVUE, Waltherr-Willard was initially hired to teach high school-level French in Cincinnati’s Mariemont district. But in 2009, the district shifted its French course online and Waltherr-Willard was transferred to a middle school. She taught there six months and then retired after her request to be reassigned to the high school was rejected.

That is when her disability entered the picture. Waltherr-Willard, who argued that her illness should have prevented the district from transferring in the first place, sued. But the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Ohio, however, rejected her disability claim, ruling that the Americans With Disabilities Act “requires an employer to accommodate a disabled employee, but it does not require unreasonable accommodations.”

The ADA does not require employers to create new jobs, the judge added.

The court also threw out her age-discrimination claim.

Landmark Calif. Burger Joint Forced to Shut Down Over ADA Lawsuit

1 Comment

 

This is from The Blaze.

Ford’s  Real Hamburgers are being forced out of business.

They are victims of a shyster lawyer and a bad law.

This shyster has filed over 2,00 ADA compliance suits.

The majority of them are on his own behalf.

The Americans With Disabilities Act is a Bad law.

The law needs to be repealed.

A decades-old Sacramento, Calif. burger joint is shutting its doors for being out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act because the owner says he can’t afford to bring it up to code.

Ford’s Real Hamburgers has been slinging burgers, fries and shakes for years, but was hit hard in the recession. Now, KTXL-TV is reporting that a local attorney who makes his living filing ADA cases — many on his own behalf — is suing the restaurant — and Ford‘s can’t keep up.

“We scrimped and saved and cut down the staff. I’m down to six employees,” owner Hank Vereschzagin told KTXL.

As the station noted, Ford’s is indeed out of ADA compliance: There isn’t enough room to roll into the bathroom in a wheelchair. But Vereschzagin said he just doesn’t have the money to fix the more than 60-year-old building.

“I don’t know. I don’t know what I’m going to do next,” he said. “I just know I can’t keep this open.”

Scott Johnson, the attorney filing the suit, didn‘t comment to KTXL about the Ford’s complaint, but he did speak to the station earlier this year when he was suing a diner.

“Being a quadriplegic, there’s nothing I can do about that,” Johnson said in February. “But these businesses that have structural barriers to access, that’s frustrating.”
