The Court of Appeals reversing the Court of Special Appeals found that a severe latex allergy was a disability, and reinstated the jury verdict in favor of the Plaintiff. In this case, Lisa Meade, a parent of a 2-year old son, objected to the use of powdered latex gloves at her son’s pre-school due to Ms. Meade’s severe latex allergy. Efforts to get the school to change its practices failed, and Ms. Meade sued for discrimination based on her “handicap”.
