ENTRY - Ms. Vestal has provided sufficient evidence that, if credited, could convince a reasonable jury that she was terminated not because she had used drugs, but because she was diabetic and because Lyons did not wish to accommodate her diabetes. The Court therefore DENIES Lyons' Motion for Summary Judgment 53 as to Ms. Vestal's ADA claims, which shall be resolved either by negotiated resolution or at trial. The remainder of Ms. Vestal's claims fail either for lack of evidence or due to legal shortcomings, and the Court therefore GRANTS Lyons' Motion as to Ms. Vestal's Rehabilitation Act and state-law negligent drug testing and negligent infliction of emotional distress claims. The Court requests that the Magistrate Judge confer with the parties regarding the possibility of settlement. Should settlement efforts fail to fully resolve the remaining claim, the Court will establish a schedule for the trial of this matter. SEE ORDER. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 6/15/2018.
