A captain in the City of Houston fire department cited the Americans With Disabilities Act in a lawsuit after he was released from his job because of his fear of entering burning buildings.

The department cited that the captain’s inability to enter burning buildings created a danger to him and others. However, the court originally awarded the captain $362,000 in the disability suit.

This decision has since been overturned by the Texas Supreme Court, which stated that no reasonable jury would find that the man’s fear denoted a disability under the ADA or any other Texas law.
