Andrea Cook & Associates has brought a petition for rehearing “en banc” in the case of Lopez v. Pacific Maritime Association. Many powerful legal organizations representing the legal rights of disabled workers, including the EEOC, NELA and the Employment Law Center have filed amicus briefs in support of Mr. Lopez’s position that the Ninth Circuit is wrong.  Mr. Lopez was precluded from reapplying for a position as a longshoremen after failing a pre-employment test seven years earlier.  Mr. Lopez rehabilitated and was ready, willing and able to perform the duties of a longshoremen but was prevented from being hired as a result of a “one strike rule.”   Pacific Maritime Association employs thousands of workers on both the east and west coast and is the exclusive employer of longshore workers.  If allowed to stand, the Ninth Circuit decision in this case will impair the ability of disabled workers to obtain relief in the courts.
