Supreme Court: ADA

NPR's Nina Totenberg reports on today's Supreme Court decision that under the Americans With Disabilities Act, disabled employees are not always entitled to jobs intended for more senior workers. The court says the ADA does not pre-empt company seniority systems. The justices ruled against a U.S. Airways baggage handler with a back injury.
