I commend to everyone's reading an article in this week's Business Insurance on the Huber v. Wal-Mart case that the Supreme Court last week decided to hear - High court to hear case on ADA job applicants. I has a collection of quotes from lawyers all over the country predicting how the Court will rule, including me:
Jonathan T. Hyman, an employer attorney with Kohrman, Jackson & Krantz P.L.L. in Cleveland, said he expects the court to rule in Wal-Mart's favor.
"I think it would be a dangerous precedent to write affirmative action into the ADA by saying you don't have to hire the most qualified person for a position," said Mr. Hyman. Hiring the most qualified person is "one of the cornerstones of employment law," he said.
