Lang v. Wal-Mart Stores East, L.P., 15-1543

In a suit brought by a former employee who was pregnant and sought a reasonable accommodation by employer defendant, claiming violations of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and the New Hampshire Civil Rights Act, the district court's grant of summary judgment to employer defendant is affirmed where: 1) plaintiff failed to create a trialworthy issue as to whether she could have performed an essential function of her job, manually lifting up to 60 pounds, with or without a reasonable accommodation; and 2) her state law claims are without merit.
