Re: [infoguys-list] Disability Discrimination?
- My personal belief on this is NO... he has not been discriminated against.
The county provided the first clean up free of charge and although his
property was now within 'county stipulations', the subject AGAIN let his
property go. Unfortunately for him, this is a case of "he said / they said"
and without photographs of what he supposedly had and what they supposedly
removed... there really is no proof of what he is claiming. His claim that
they are discriminating against him because of his OCD disability does not
fall in line for his insinuations of discrimination to me. They provided
him with warning, they gave him ample time AND they cleaned his property for
Additionally, do you know if has documented proof of being treated for this
Just my personal belief....
