On March 3rd, 2009 I posted in Day In Washington about Kirk Jenkins’ lawsuit against the National Board of Medical Examiners. He had been denied an accommodation for the Medical Licensing Exam and filed a lawsuit. Kirk lost his initial lawsuit because the circuit court didn’t consider him "disabled enough" under the ADA. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit decided to apply the ADA Amendments Act retroactively, allowing Kirk to move forward with his suit.
