This attorney was employed by the New Jersey Attorney General’s office. Because he had cerebral palsy, they gave him 30 special accommodations. These included “reserved indoor parking, adjusted timing on elevator doors, a grab handle in the rest room and transportation to court appearances. ” But after they denied his 31st request for a special accommodation , for “a personal assistant who would function as his shadow,” he brought a discrimination claim. A New Jersey appeals court just ruled that he had no case. Still, the taxpayers had to, in effect, pay for the litigation to be defended. Just more evidence that no good deed goes unpunished.
