Munger Tolles & Olson LLP Secures Judgment on Behalf of Student in Disability Lawsuit
Munger Tolles, alongside the Disability Rights Legal Center (“DRLC”), has secured a $400,000 judgment on behalf of a former student of Western University of Health Sciences, who alleged the university failed to properly accommodate her learning disabilities.
The judgment, which was entered as a part of a settlement between the student and the university, ended six years of litigation in federal court.
“This settlement vindicates Lindsay Rogers’ claims that Western University should have accommodated her disabilities. Cases like this are central to DRLC’s mission of working to ensure that people with disabilities are provided appropriate accommodations,” said Joseph Lee, a partner of the firm who also serves as President of DRLC’s Board of Directors.
In addition to Mr. Lee, the Munger Tolles team included litigation associate Rowley Rice.
