Seattle NPR Affiliate on Argenyi v. Creighton University

See this story, which begins:
A Seattle man says his dreams of being a doctor are being dashed because Creighton University Medical School in Nebraska won’t accommodate his hearing impairment. At issue is just how far an institution must go to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. 
The case, Argenvi v. Creighton University, is being heard in the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Paul, Minnesota. 
Michael Argenyi, who has profound hearing loss, claims the school is in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act because it has not provided him with interpreters and a real time captioning service known as CART.
