11th Circuit

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the case D'Angelo v. ConAgra Foods Inc. Aug. 30, holding that a woman who suffered from vertigo can sue her former employer under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

In 2001 ConAgra Foods Inc. fired Cris D'Angelo after she presented a note from her doctor stating D'Angelo couldn't perform certain tasks at the Tampa, Fla.-based seafood processing plant at which she was employed due to her vertigo condition. D'Angelo filed suit against ConAgra in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida alleging disability discrimination in violation of the ADA.
