Gibbs v. City of Pittsburgh

3rd Circuit

March 3, 2021

In Gibbs v. City of Pittsburgh, the Third Circuit reviewed the District Court’s order dismissing the plaintiff’s complaint. He alleged that the city of Pittsburgh violated the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act when it did not hire him as a police officer. In order to secure employment with the city’s police department, the plaintiff was evaluated by three psychologists; two found him unfit for service, so he was not hired. Plaintiff claimed that the psychologists were biased and that they found him unqualified solely because he has ADHD. The Third Circuit held that he had alleged a plausible discrimination case, reversed the District Court’s order, and remanded for further proceedings.
