COPAA joined a number of other organizations in filing an amicus brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Rawdin v. American Board of Pediatrics. In Rawdin, a pediatrician was denied appropriate accommodations on medical board exams for his learning disability. In the amicus brief, amici argue that the district court relied on case law and reasoning that Congress specifically rejected in enacting the ADA Amendments Act in 2008; that the district court applied an incorrect legal standard in determining that Dr. Rawdin did not have a disability; and that the district court improperly granted a testing entity deference that is accorded to educational institutions.
