Brinson v. Department of Environmental Regulation

Plaintiff, who is hypersensitive to tobacco smoke, alleged violations of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and state statutory and common law rights because her employer failed to make a reasonable accommodation to her handicap and subsequently fired her.  The employer moved for summary judgment.  A District Court Judge denied the motion for summary judgment since “genuine issues of material fact exist with regard to plaintiff’s federal claims.”

U.S. Dist. Ct., (No. Dist. Fla., Tallahassee Div. 1984).
