Supreme Court Won’t Hear ADA Obesity Case

October 10, 2016
The U.S. Supreme Court has left intact an appeals court ruling that obesity alone does not constitute a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

"The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ April ruling was considered a major victory for employers in Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota. The court joined the 2nd and 6th Circuits with its ruling (Morriss v. BNSF Railway Co., No. 14-3858 (8th Cir. April 5, 2016))."
