Supreme Court denies cert. in Taylor v. Federal Express
The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday let stand the Fourth Circuit's decision in Taylor v. Federal Express Corp., No. 04-2056 (4th Cir. Nov. 16, 2005) (see previous post), that a former Federal Express courier with a 30 lb. lifting restriction was not disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act because a jury could not reasonably conclude that he was substantially limited in the major life activity of working. Taylor v. Federal Express Corp., U.S., No. 05-1023, cert. denied 5/22/06 (PDF).
