Sounds like you suffer from the same ailment I have: avascular necrosis. It sucks; your joints start falling apart, but you're only in your 20's or 30's. I think it's fairly clear that if your physician is willing to sign for a disability tag, then federal law is behind you. If you have the physician's signature, then the school is flat-out screwed in a civil lawsuit, regardless of what their legal counsel says.I've been in that situation where walking just 50 ft means experiencing immense pain. If you can't get satisfaction from the school, talk to an attorney. The case you describe would make most attorneys see dollar signs. If they know their stuff, they can make a buck off your case, and that is enough for them to take your case. You'd be damn lucky to find an attorney to argue the case on the basis of social justice, alone -- go civil lawsuit.
