U.S. Appeals Court: TERMINATION ADA- Americans with Disabilities Act.

Renaud v. Wyoming Dept. of Family Services, 203 F.3d 723 (10th Cir. 2000). The terminated superintendent of a state juvenile corrections facility brought an action against the state for breach of contract and violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. (ADA). Following a jury trial the district court entered judgment for the state. The appeals court affirmed, finding that the superintendent could be terminated at will and that the district court did not abuse its discretion in refusing to instruct the jury that alcoholism was a disability in all cases for the purposes of ADA.
