A New ADA Claim: Addicted to the Internet

A man has sued IBM for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act when it fired him for using an adult oriented chat room while working. The man claims that he is a sex and internet addict that deserves protection under the ADA.

I am no expert on the American’s with Disabilities Act. Therefore, I will not comment on the viability of his claim. I will say, however, it certainly makes for an interesting story.
