(RIPR) The 2014 case hinges on a University of Rhode Island student’s summer job and her status as a medical marijuana cardholder. Student Christine Callaghan disclosed her medical status to her potential employer – Darlington Fabrics – and was denied a paid summer internship, according to the suit. The ACLU claims that denial constitutes disability discrimination. The organization is seeking monetary damage on behalf of its client.
Darlington tried to have the suit thrown out in the summer of 2015. But now the Superior Court will hear motions for a summary judgment in the case.
