 test. The district court held that the department of corrections was liable under the Rehabilitation Act to the disabled inmate who allegedly lost his premium-pay job due to the department's refusal to make accommodations. The court awarded damages in the form of back pay from the date he lost his premium-pay job to the date he was transferred to a different facility. The court noted that it was undisputed that the inmate, who was blind in one eye and has learning disabilities, was disabled within the meaning of the Rehabilitation Act, and that the accommodations requested (extra time to complete the test, as recommended by two psychologists) did not constitute an undue burden on the prison.
