Murray v. Mayo Clinic

Petition for certiorari denied on April 27, 2020
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
19-995 9th Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2019

Issue: Whether the “motivating factor” standard is most consistent with the plain language and purposes of the statute, and congressional intent, and therefore the appropriate standard to be applied under the Americans with Disabilities Act, which forbids discrimination “on the basis of” disability, but does not specifically set forth the standard to be applied in determining causation.
