Wrongful Termination Action

In Duello v. Buchanan Cty. Bd. of Supervisors, No. 10-2061, an action against Buchanan County, Iowa for wrongful termination, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Iowa Civil Rights Act, the court affirmed summary judgment for defendants where, even assuming plaintiff met the essential prerequisites for his position, he was unable to perform the essential functions of his job.

As the court wrote:  "Roger Duello ("Duello") sued Buchanan County, Iowa ("County") for wrongful termination, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") and the Iowa Civil Rights Act ("ICRA"). The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendants, finding that Duello could not prevail under either statute because he was not a "qualified individual" within the meaning of the ADA. Duello appeals, and we affirm."
