In this episode of Fire Law Roundup for July 24, 2023, Brad and Curt discuss the settlement of a disability discrimination lawsuit brought by a deaf North Carolina firefighter who sought an accommodation for an EMT exam; a rather unusual suit against the San Diego Fire Department because a chaplin failed to report child abuse; a suit against FDNY alleging an unnecessary delay in medics accessing a shooting victim; the settlement of an FLSA overtime suit that cost taxpayers in Tulsa over $1 million; and a suit by two Mobile captains who claim they were disciplined in retaliation for standing up for a female firefighter.
