Court Rules Judges May Not Use Narrow Grounds in Dismissing Handicapped-Bias Lawsuits.
Jaschik, Scott
Chronicle of Higher Education, v37 n35 pA18,22 May 15 1991
A federal appeals court ruled that judges may not dismiss handicapped-discrimination lawsuits against universities solely on the basis of official university statements that allegedly discriminatory practices are appropriate for the academic programs involved. The decision keeps alive a case in which a dyslexic student could not take a multiple-choice test. (MSE)
