Olsen v. Capital Region Medical Center, et al, No. 12-2113 (8th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Plaintiff, employed by the CRMC, filed charges of discrimination against her employer after CRMC's placement of her on administrative leave following work-related epileptic seizures and the hiring of a younger technician. Because plaintiff was not a qualified individual to perform the job duties with or without accommodation, the court did not err in granting summary judgment to CRMC based on the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. 12101 et seq., and Missouri Human Rights Act, Mo. Rev. Stat. 213.010, claims. Plaintiff's age discrimination claims failed for the same reason her disability discrimination claims failed. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment.
