Where a law school applicant sued a university and school officials under the Americans with Disabilities Act, claiming that the school discriminated against him when it rejected his admission application, the judgment for the defendants is affirmed because the school articulated the applicant’s lack of potential to complete the program and pass the bar exam as legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for the decision.
Judgment is affirmed.
