The D.C. Circuit affirmed in part and reversed in part the district court in a case in which the plaintiff claimed that the FBI discriminated and retaliated against him when it dismissed him from the FBI Academy because of his post-traumatic stress disorder, in violation of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The appeals court found no error by the trial court concerning the plaintiff's retaliation claim but found that the plaintiff presented enough evidence to allow a reasonable jury to make certain findings in his favor regarding his disability claim and, therefore, reversed the grant of summary judgment on this issue.
