Turner v. Hershey Chocolate USA, 04-4674
Summary judgment for defendant-employer, a candy maker, on an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) claim is reversed where estoppel did not apply to bar the ADA claim with regards to certain prior submissions of plaintiff for disability benefits, and the district court erred in determining that plaintiff was not a "qualified individual" under the ADA because she could not perform an essential job function.
