Descripción de editorial

Plaintiff-appellee, cross-appellant Robert P. Burch (Burch) brought this suit under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) asserting that his termination by his employer defendant-appellant, cross-appellee Coca-Cola Co. was in violation of the ADA. Burch also advanced Texas law claims of intentional infliction of emotional distress and defamation. The trial court granted Coca-Cola's motion for summary judgment on the state law claims and granted judgment as a matter of law for Coca-Cola on the ADA intentional discrimination claim. The jury returned a verdict in favor of Burch on the ADA reasonable accommodation claim. Coca-Cola appeals the denial of its motion for judgment as a matter of law on the reasonable accommodation claim. Burch cross appeals the judgment as a matter of law on his intentional discrimination claim and the summary judgment on his defamation claim. We hold that Coca-Cola was entitled to judgment as a matter of law on both the intentional discrimination and the reasonable accommodation ADA claims, and that summary judgment was properly awarded to it on the defamation claim.
