Meinelt v. P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Inc.

The firm represented Jason Meinelt, a restaurant manager, who was fired just three days after telling his employer that he had a brain tumor.

Meinelt’s case was one of the first disability cases across the country under the newly strengthened Americans with Disabilities Act, which provides broader coverage for people with medical conditions.

The district court denied summary judgment, ensuring that a jury would be allowed to hear Meinelt’s case. The case settled before trial.
