A federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit filed by a warehouse worker who alleges he was fired for not having a disability retirement plan is invalid.
The judge ruled on Tuesday that the worker did not have to file an amended complaint for the wrongful termination claim to be dismissed.
The lawsuit by the warehouse worker, who requested not to be identified because of his disability, alleged that the federal government violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by discriminating against him for not being eligible for disability retirement plans.
The warehouse worker filed his lawsuit last month in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
The case was settled in July, according to the judge.
