Halpern v. Wake Forest University Health Sciences, 10-2162

In an action alleging that the plaintiff's dismissal from medical school for unprofessional behavior violated the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act, the district court's grant of summary judgment to the medical school is affirmed, where the district court did not err in determining as a matter of law that the plaintiff was not "otherwise qualified" to participate in the medical school's program, with or without a reasonable accommodation.
