Legal Lions

Sattler & Bogen LLP and Thompson & Knight LLP got an Eight Circuit victory for client BNSF Railway Co. when the appeals court ruled that obesity is not a covered condition of the Americans with Disabilities Act and that the company was within its rights to deny employment to an otherwise-qualified obese job applicant because his weight was not the result of another physiological impairment. BNSF is represented by Nichole S. Bogen of Sattler & Bogen and Bryan P. Neal of Thompson & Knight. The former employee is represented by Ari David Riekes of Marks Clare & Richards LLC and Jennifer L. Turco Meyer of Dyer Law PC.
