Docket Number: 
U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C.
MWELA Amicus by Douglas Huron
Expert Witness: 
Filing Date: 
December 5, 2003

Adam Barbour briefly worked for WMATA in 1998, during a time (like all
others) when the Authority was receiving Federal funds. After being fired, Barbour sued
WMATA, among other things alleging violations of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation
Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 794, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The
district court granted WMATA’s motion to dismiss the ADA allegation on Eleventh
Amendment immunity grounds [App. 13] but denied the Authority’s attempt to invoke
immunity on the Rehabilitation Act claim [App. 59]. This interlocutory appeal followed.
Puerto Rico Aqueduct & Sewer Authority v. Metcalf & Eddy, Inc., 506 U.S. 139, 144-45
