Disability Lawsuit With Former Pharmacist

This case is from 2008, but it's an interesting story:

"Wal-Mart Settles 14-Year Old Disability Lawsuit With Former Pharmacist"

Wal-Mart pharmacist, Glenda Allen, was shot during a robbery at her second job. Doctors estimated her chance of survival as very poor. But survive she did. Doctors concluded she may never walk again. But walk she did. In the end, she suffered permanent injury to her spinal cord and required the use of a cane as a result of an abnormal gait caused by the shooting.
When she sought to return to work, Wal-Mart fired her.

More information about the story can be found here.
