“In a Statement of Claim dated July 22, 2015 (page 128, see below), Marc Conte begins, “I am a 51-year old WHITE male with a criminal arrest and conviction record, drug & alcohol history (disability), and I am a practicing vegan-Buddhist. I was hired by the City of New York on December 08, 2014 as a Sanitation Enforcement Agent (SEA). I do not fit-in in any way with the majority of 95% younger black & Hispanic Christian supervisors and co-workers.””
It seems axiomatic that a disability discrimination claim requires the plaintiff to suffer from a disability. In Johnson v. N.Y. State Office of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Servs., No. 16-cv-9769 (RJS) (S.D.N.Y., March 13, 2018), a judge in the Southern District of New York dismissed a pro se plaintiff’s complaint for failure to allege that his alcoholism impaired a major life activity, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”).Plaintiff worked for the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (“OASAS”) as an Addiction Counselor Assistant. He filed a lawsuit alleging discrimination based upon his purported disability – alcoholism – under the ADA. The court granted OASAS’ motion to dismiss finding Plaintiff failed to allege he suffered from a “disability” as defined under the ADA.
