By FindLaw Staff on July 24, 2009 5:26 PM

In an employment termination action brought under the Americans with Disabilities Act, summary judgment for defendant is reversed where: 1) plaintiff is entitled to proceed to trial on her due-process claim as she had a property interest in continuing employment and defendant deprived her of it without a hearing; and 2) an informal complaint may constitute protected activity for purposes of retaliation claims under the ADA; and 3) there is a triable issue as to whether the employer initiated plaintiff's discharge because she had just protested her supervisor's possibly discriminatory attitude or because her work performance was inadequate.
