Abilt v. CIA, 15-2568

In a suit brought by a former CIA agent who suffered from narcolepsy, alleging discrimination and ultimately termination based on his disability, failure to accommodate, and retaliation, the district court's dismissal of the complaint based on the state secrets doctrine is affirmed where the district court correctly concluded that the information in question is properly privileged and that litigation of the case would present an unjustifiable risk of disclosure of that information.
