Anderson v. Donahoe

Federal 7th Circuit Court
Civil Court
Case Number: 
No. 11-3784
Decision Date: 
October 26, 2012
Federal District: 
N.D. Ill., E. Div.
Dist. Ct. did not err in granting defendant-employer’s motion for summary judgment in action under ADA alleging that defendant retaliated against plaintiff-employee by failing to accommodate employee’s multiple requests to accommodate his asthma. Thirteen-month gap between plaintiff’s filing of EEO complaint his requests for accommodation was too long to establish causal connection for instant retaliation claim. Also, plaintiff could not resurrect any disability claim that had been contained in his original pro se complaint where plaintiff had filed two amended complaints that had omitted said disability claim.
