High Court denies employer’s motion for reconsideration in Curry.

The Connecticut Supreme Court has denied the Defendant’s Motion for Reconsideration in Curry v. Allan S. Goodman, Inc.  I wrote about this important case in an earlier post.  The employer had filed a motion for reconsideration asking, among other things, that the high court revisit the issue of whether or not the Plaintiff’s attorney’s post termination letter could be considered a request for an accommodation.  While the Court did not articulate its reason for denying this motion, the undersigned believes that the issue was a red herring.  Mr. Curry had clearly asked for an accommodation himself prior to his termination by posting for the lighter duty warehouse position.  The Court had clearly indicated that this request constituted a request for an accommodation.  The opinion stands as written.
