No. 12 C 08879 CITY OF EVANSTON, ILLINOIS, Defendant-Appellant. Edmond E. Chang, Judge. ORDER The slip opinion issued in the above-entitled cause on July 31, 2017, is amended. On page 4, the second full paragraph beginning “Stragapede sued the City” and ending “total award to $354,070.72” is removed in its entirety and now reads: “Stragapede sued the City alleging that he was fired because of his disability in violation of the ADA. A jury returned a verdict for Stragapede and awarded $225,000 in damages. The judge then turned to the issue of equitable remedies, concluding that Stragapede was entitled to $354,070.72 in backpay plus interest from the date he was fired until the time of judgment. The judge did not award front pay. The jury’s damages award and the judge’s backpay calculation brought the total award to $579,070.72”
