NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on today's Supreme Court arguments in an employee disability case. A former Toyota worker argues that under the Americans With Disabilities Act, the company has to give her a job that doesn't aggravate her carpal tunnel syndrome, which she developed working on the assembly line. Toyota says the woman is not sufficiently disabled to be covered by the ADA.
