Decision summarized by Kathleen Kapusta, J.D.

"An employee’s request for a laptop so he could work from home while recovering from surgery was a “far cry from a ‘sufficiently direct and specific’ request for an accommodation” that would put his employer on notice that he wanted assistance for his disability, the Tenth Circuit ruled in an unpublished decision.

"Accordingly, the appeals court affirmed summary judgment in favor of the employer on his ADA failure to accommodate claim.(Dinse v Carlisle Foodservice Products, Inc, November 6, 2013, Holmes, J)."
