The article offers the author's insights on the U.S. Supreme Court case of Keith v. Oakland County, Michigan which deals with employee discrimination on the basis of disability in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The author states that the issue in the case is that whether Keith had alleged enough facts in which if proven in trial, would establish his ADA claim. He adds that Oakland claimed that the ADA claim of Keith should be dismissed due to unessential functions of the job.
