  3. Hutchinson v. United Parcel Service, Inc. (1995)

    Who may benefit from the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), 42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq., appears to this court to be the most frequently encountered question in the comparatively short life of the ADA. In this lawsuit, the plaintiff employee asserts that she is sufficiently disabled to pursue claims under the ADA as the result of a single restriction on her activities, or on the basis of the cumulative effect of several restrictions, while her employer asserts that the [...]

  8. Rural Water System 1 v. City of Sioux Center (1997)

    This "turf war" is not between rival gangs over control of the distribution of some illegal substance in a disputed territory, but between such staid entities as a municipality and a non-profit corporation over distribution of a legal, commonplace, substance: water. Furthermore, the disputed "turf" is not some section of urban jungle; rather, it is an area bordering the city limits of a quiet rural Iowa town. Finally, the weapons in this "turf war" are not guns or knives, but legal arguments. [...]

  10. Uncle B's Bakery, Inc. v. O'ROURKE (1996)

    Although the court had not imagined that supermarket bagels could spawn rivalries more intense than that between cream cheese and butter, the court has discovered in this "trade secrets" case that rival bagel makers hone their competitive edges with as much alacrity as other entrepreneurs. Presently before the court is the application of one maker and distributor of supermarket bagels for a preliminary injunction seeking to protect its "trade secrets" in bagel making and packaging by enjoining [...]

  13. West v. Aetna Life Ins. Co. (2001)

    Was an intoxicated driver's death when the car he was driving missed a curve on a highway as he returned home from an office Christmas party an "accident" within the meaning of an accidental death insurance policy governed by ERISA? The insurer denied coverage under the policy, concluding that the driver's death was not an "accident" within the meaning of the policy, as interpreted by the insurer as plan fiduciary, because his death was not "unexpected, unusual, and unforeseen." The driver's [...]
