    Justice O'Connor Sits on 3rd Circuit Panel Hearing UPS Challenge to ADA Class Action - Law.com

    Former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor's first case as a visiting judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals presented a cutting-edge question in employment discrimination law: whether workers may pursue a class action to challenge companywide policies allegedly designed to thwart the Americans with Disabilities Act.

    In the appeal in Hohider v. United Parcel Service Inc., lawyers for UPS are urging the 3rd Circuit to reverse a decision by U.S. District Judge Joy Flowers Conti of the Western District of Pennsylvania that certified a national class action brought by current and former UPS workers who claim the company’s policies are hostile to those seeking a "reasonable accommodation."
