“9th Circ. Asked To Rehear Ruling Obesity Is Not ‘Impairment'”

A man who was denied employment by BNSF Railway Co. because of his obesity asked the Ninth Circuit on Friday to rehear its decision finding that his obesity is not an “impairment” under Montana state law, saying that the appeals court erred by overlooking and ignoring the undisputed evidence in the case.

BNSF is represented by Stephen F. Fink and Bryan P. Neal of Thompson & Knight LLP, and Jeff Hedger and Michelle Terese Friend of Hedger Friend PLLC.
