A former hotel doorman who claims to suffer from narcolepsy and who was fired by one hotel for sleeping on the job can sue a second employer for retaliatory discharge, a federal judge has ruled.

Emmanuel Okoro has sued the Marriott for disability discrimination. That allegation is now the subject of arbitration. Meanwhile, Okoro has sued the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, claiming it fired him when it found out about the Marriott incident.
