    Court reverses ruling, says UPS worker entitled to trial on ADA claim - Business Insurance

    An appellate court on Wednesday reversed a lower court ruling and said a United Parcel Service Inc. worker is entitled to a trial on her Americans with Disabilities Act claim.

    The complex case of Teresa Watts v. United Parcel Service Inc. has gone to trial three times and been appealed to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati once before, according to the 6th Circuit's latest ruling.

    Ms. Watts began working for Atlanta-based UPS in its Hamilton, Ohio, facility in 1990. In June 2000, she sustained a serious back injury while unloading a large tire from her delivery truck, according to the ruling.
