In his ruling in the case on Monday, June 24, U.S. District Court Judge Jimm Larry Hendren wrote that Old Dominion’s policy, which “fails to even consider the possibility of accommodation, cannot be justified either on public safety concerns or business necessity considerations.” He added that his ruling “will be incorporated in the judgment to be entered when this case is concluded.” The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a disability discrimination lawsuit against Old Dominion in the U.S. District Court for the Western District in Little Rock, Ark., in 2011, after a driver who worked there was told that he would never be able to return to his job as a truck driver.
