The petition of the day is:

17-1222

Issues: (1) Whether the level of discriminatory intent required to award compensatory damages under the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12132, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, 29 U.S.C. § 794, is “discriminatory animus,” as three circuits have held, or “deliberate indifference,” as five circuits have held; and (2) whether the provision of an effective accommodation can amount to discriminatory intent.
