Well I Would Hope So

This is the description of the 4th Circuit's decision lifted entirely from today's Daily Labor Report ($):
A medical intern who misdiagnosed patients, prescribed wrong medications, and identified a living patient as deceased could not show he was a qualified individual with a disability under the ADA.
Shin v. University of Maryland Medical System (4th Cir.)(3/11/10) [pdf].


I see that the decision is unpublished. I guess the court didn't want to stick its neck out and say that interns who couldn't tell whether or not patients were dead would necessarily be unqualified.
