Thomas Weiler successfully defended a Village police department on a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and was tried before Dist. Court Judge Matthew Kennelly. The plaintiff, a probationary police officer, claimed that he was terminated because he was “regarded as” disabled by the department because of an impairment in his night vision. The police department contended that his termination was a result of misconduct on his part, not because of any perceived disability. The plaintiff’s pre-trial demand was $375,000. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendantVillage after four days of trial.
