D. Minn. on Stuttering as Disability

New on Westlaw (and for free on the web here): Judge Donovan Frank of the District of Minnesota ruled last week that a plaintiff with a stuttering disorder presented sufficient evidence to overcome summary judgment on the question whether she had an ADA "disability." The court said that the evidence, taken in the light most favorable to the plaintiff, would establish that her severe stuttering disorder substantially limited the major life activity of speaking. The case is Andresen v. Fuddruckers, Inc., 2004 WL 2931346 (D. Minn., Dec. 14, 2004).
