20-CV-1305 Anderson v. Elmbrook School District

Decision and Order

After the defendant moved for summary judgment in an action under 42 U.S.C. sec. 1983 based on the plaintiff’s requests for admission, the plaintiff sought to withdraw or amend her admissions. The court determined that the plaintiff had failed to demonstrate that setting aside the admissions would promote the presentation of the merits of the action, and therefore it denied the request to withdraw or amend and granted summary judgment based on the admissions. However, the court denied the request for summary judgment to the extent it pertained to matters not foreclosed by the admissions.

Therefore, the court granted the plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment.

16-CV-13 Schneider v. United States Postal Service et al

Order on Motion for Summary Judgment

Plaintiff brought Rehabilitation Act claims for failure to accommodate, retaliation, and constructive discharge against his former employer, the United States Postal Service.  He also brought a claim for improper disclosure under the Privacy Act of 1974.  Both parties moved for summary judgment.  Summary judgment was granted for Defendant on the failure to accommodate, constructive discharge, and improper disclosure claims.  However, because questions of fact remained with respect to the retaliation claim, the Court denied both sides’ motion for summary judgment on that claim and allowed it to proceed to trial.
