DC Police Department Disability Discrimination

M&S and co-counsel at Brown Goldstein & Levy represent former D.C. Metropolitan Police Department officers who were forced to retire early due to injury or disability in a class action lawsuit against the District and the Department. The plaintiffs allege that, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, the police department failed to engage officers in the interactive process or to provide reasonable accommodations that would allow them to stay on the job. To learn more about the proposed class action, see the complaint here.
