1 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 1 of 13 PageID 1109 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION CLINTON KNOWLES, Plaintiff, v. CASE NO: 8:09-cv-1920-T-26AEP THOMAS KNIGHT, Defendant. / O R D E R THIS CAUSE comes before e Court on Defendant, Sarasota County Sheriff Thomas Knight's motion for summary judgment, memorandum in support, and supporting exhibits. (Dkts ) Plaintiff filed a response to e motion wi an incorporated memorandum of law and supporting exhibits. (Dkts ) Plaintiff s Claims & Allegations Plaintiff, who was formerly employed as a sergeant and SWAT unit training instructor wi e Sarasota County Sheriff s Office, sues Defendant Thomas Knight in his official capacity as Sheriff of Sarasota County for violating his rights under e e Americans Wi Disabilities Act of 1990, 42 U.S.C ("e ADA"), e Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992, , et seq., Florida Statutes ("e FCRA") and Section 504 of e Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. 706 ("e Rehab Act"). The ree-
2 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 2 of 13 PageID 1110 count complaint alleges at Defendant's failure or refusal to refer or assign Plaintiff to an 1 available Employee Assistance Program ("e EAP") for treatment of alcoholism prior to e misconduct for which his employment was terminated. Plaintiff alleges at as a result of Defendant's inaction he was deprived of benefits, privileges, and terms and conditions of employment which caused him to suffer humiliation, embarrassment, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional suffering, and mental distress. He seeks compensatory damages and oer relief. Defendant moves for e entry of final summary judgment. Summary Judgment Standard Summary judgment is appropriate where ere is no genuine issue of material fact. Fed.R.Civ.P. 56. Where e record taken as a whole could not lead a rational trier of fact to find for e nonmoving party, ere is no genuine issue for trial. Matsushita Elec. Indus. Co. v. Zeni Radio Corp., 475 U.S. 574 (1986) (citation omitted). On a motion for summary judgment, e court must review e record, and all its inferences, in e light most favorable to e nonmoving party. United States v. Diebold, Inc., 369 U.S. 654, 655 (1962). Having done so, e Court finds at Defendant is entitled to e entry of final summary judgment. 1 EAP refers to e Employee Assistance Program, which is a program at provides professional and confidential counseling assistance for members and/or eir family members faced wi issues on or off e job at could result in, or are resulting in, performance or behavioral problems on e job. (Knowles Depo., Ex. 5 (SCSO General Order 21.1). -2-
3 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 3 of 13 PageID 1111 Standard of Review To establish a prima facie discrimination claim under e ADA standard, Plaintiff must prove: (1) at he has a statutorily covered disability; (2) at he is a qualified individual, which is to say, he is able to perform e essential functions of e employment position to be held wi or wiout reasonable accommodation; and (3) at Defendant discriminated against him because of his disability. D Angelo v. ConAgra Foods, Inc., 422 F.3d 1220, 1226 (11 Cir. 2005). The Eleven Circuit has held at [b]ecause e same standards govern discrimination claims under e Rehab Act and e ADA, we discuss ose claims togeer and rely on cases construing ose statutes interchangeably. Allmond v. Akal Sec., Inc., 558 F.3d 1312, 1316 n.3 (11 Cir. 2009). Disability claims under e FCRA are also analyzed under e ADA standard. Cordoba v. Dillard s, Inc., 419 F.3d 1169, 1175 (11 Cir. 2005). Discussion Plaintiff began his employment wi e Sarasota County Sheriff s Office in 1995 as a patrol officer and during e course of his 12 plus years of employment he advanced to a position as a narcotics detective, en to a member of e SWAT unit, and en ultimately to sergeant and SWAT unit training instructor. (Dkt. 26, Knowles Depo., pp ) As a member of e SWAT unit he was required to satisfy annual rigorous physical and psychological testing. (Dkt. 27, Kenney Affidavit.) Plaintiff rose in e SWAT unit to become a team leader who supervises, coordinates, and facilitates member -3-

Plaintiff had established a habit of abusing alcohol starting in his pre-teen years and continuing rough his years of employment wi e Sheriff s Office. (Knowles Depo., pp ) His alcohol abuse caused him problems, including blackouts on more an one occasion. (Id. at ) He never sought treatment or counseling for his alcohol abuse. (Id. at 26.) Plaintiff did have a disciplinary history during his employment which included alcohol-related incidents. (Id. at 27-31; Dkt. 27, Brief Affidavit, Ex. C.) One incident was a traffic stop in 1997 where Charlotte County law enforcement officers observed at Plaintiff was borderline DUI, for which Plaintiff was reprimanded. (Knowles Depo., pp ) The next ree disciplinary incidents were not alcohol-related. (Id. at ) Then, in October 2007, Plaintiff failed to report for duty on two separate occasions because, as he told Captain Rick Mottola, he had been drinking for several days and was hungover and didn t go, started drinking again, and missed e second day as a result also. (Id. at 31-32; ) He failed to report on ese two occasions because he had burned up all his sick leave time. (Id. at 32.) His discipline was a 50 hour suspension, wiout pay, and removal from e SWAT unit. (Id. at 31.) Plaintiff testified at he had a discussion wi Mottola about wheer he would be willing to get counseling for his alcohol problem, at he expressed to Mottola he needed it, but he did -4-

(Id. at 31; ) Plaintiff served his 50 hour suspension and returned to duty, but was not permitted to resume participation in e SWAT unit. (Id. at 57.) Captain Mottola had issued a memorandum placing Plaintiff on probation for one year, prohibiting off-duty employment for six mons, and removing Plaintiff from e SWAT unit for ree mons or completion of EAP - whichever occurs later. (Id.) Plaintiff understood is to mean at if he completed EAP wiin ree mons, he would be reinstated to e SWAT unit or at if ree mons passed, he would be required to continue in e EAP program until it is completed. (Id. at 58.) In November 2007, Plaintiff failed to respond to a call and was given a one day demotion from sergeant to deputy. (Id. at ) His reinstatement followed a brief meeting wi Defendant and a captain where ey discussed wheer Plaintiff still wanted to get into e EAP program. (Id.) Plaintiff indicated his interest in e program, but ere was no discussion of his alcohol abuse. (Id.) He resumed his regular duties as a sergeant, wi e exception of SWAT duties. (Id. at ) Plaintiff testified at in December 2007 or January 2008, he asked Lieutenant Kimball what was going on wi respect to e EAP program, but he did not discuss his alcohol abuse. (Id. at ) -5-
6 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 6 of 13 PageID 1114 Plaintiff acknowledges at during his employment wi e Sheriff s Office he never consumed alcohol while on duty, reported for duty intoxicated, or experienced any blackouts while on duty. (Id. at ) During his deposition, Plaintiff was unable to identify any on-duty job requirements at he was unable to perform because of his alcohol dependence. (Id. at 41.) Throughout his employment, he was aware of e EAP program and at it included counseling services for alcohol-related issues, but he never voluntarily sought counseling or asked a counselor to refer him to e EAP. (Id. at 44-45; 54.) Alough oers at e Sheriff s Office knew of Plaintiff s drinking habits, Plaintiff can only recall one discussion of his alcohol dependence wi a supervisory officer prior to February 28, 2008, which was e discussion wi Captain Mottola in October (Id. at 33-34; 47-48; see also Dkt. 37, Kenney Depo., p. 26; Dkt. 34, Hayes Depo., pp ) On February 27, 2008, Plaintiff was informed by telephone at he was being reinstated into e SWAT unit. (Id. at ) At e time he received e call, he was at a Chili s restaurant consuming alcohol. (Id. at 68.) The next evening, he was e subject of a police investigation arising from his actions at an Applebee s restaurant in Nor Port, Sarasota County, Florida. (Id. at Ex. 5.) A server and a patron filed criminal charges for battery against Plaintiff for inappropriately touching and groping em wiout eir permission. (Id.) Plaintiff does not dispute eir recollection of his behavior. (Id. at ) On March 4, 2008, Plaintiff entered a residential treatment -6-
7 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 7 of 13 PageID 1115 facility where he completed treatment for his dependence. (Dkt. 38, Werner Depo., Ex. 1, pp. 1-2.) However, a Sheriff s Office investigation of e February 28, 2008, incident resulted in Plaintiff s termination from employment on April 21, 2008, e basis for which was one of Plaintiff s non-alcohol-related incidents in 2006 where he failed to take corrective action when a female deputy was at his residence wi her department vehicle, e two 2007 incidents of Plaintiff failing to report for duty, and e 2008 incident at Applebee s involving use of alcohol off-duty and two counts of battery. (See Dkt 28, Transcript of e Career Services Board hearing on May 13, 2008, pp. 4; 7-8; ) The basis for Plaintiff s claims in is action is not his termination, but raer e alleged failure of Defendant to refer e Plaintiff to e EAP program as he had requested and e [Defendant] had agreed to do on several occasions for treatment of his disability, alcoholism, prior to he misconduct for which he was terminated. (Dkt. 1, Complaint, 22, 24-25, 30-31, ) Under e ADA, disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment at substantially limits one or more of e major life activities of such individual and a record of such impairment or being regarded as having such an impairment. 42 U.S.C (a); see also D Angelo, 422 F.3d at Establishing an actual disability under e ADA involves a ree-step analysis. The plaintiff must: (1) demonstrate at he suffers from a physical or mental impairment; (2) identify one or more life activities at are impaired by e physical or mental impairment and demonstrate at ey qualify as a major life activity under e ADA; and (3) show -7-
8 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 8 of 13 PageID 1116 at e impairment substantially limits at life activity. Rossbach v. City of Miami, 371 F.3d 1354, 1357 (11 Cir. 2004). A major life activity includes functions such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breaing, learning, and working. 45 C.F.R. 84.3(j)(2)(iii); see also Rossbach, 371 F.3d at Substantially limits is defined by governing regulations as: unable to perform a major life activity at e average person in e general population can perform; or significantly restricted as to e condition, manner, or duration under which an individual can perform a particular major life activity as compared to e condition, manner, or duration under which e average person in e general population can perform e same major life activity. 29 C.F.R (j). The following factors are considered in assessing wheer an individual is substantially limited in a major life activity: (I) e nature and severity of e impairment; (ii) e duration or expected duration of e impairment; and (iii) e permanent or long term impact, or e expected permanent or long term impact of or resulting from e impairment. 29 C.F.R (j)(2). Substantially limits is a severe standard and must include permanent and long term restrictions on performance of e life activity. Roig v. Miami Federal Credit Union, 353 F. Supp. 2d 1213, 1216 (S.D. Fla. 2005). Alcoholism is not a per se disability, but raer must be shown to be an impairment at substantially limits on or more of a plaintiff s major life activities. Goldsmi v. Jackson Memorial Hospital Public Heal Trust, 33 F. Supp. 2d 2336, (S.D. Fla. -8-
9 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 9 of 13 PageID ) (citing Burch v. Coca-Cola Co., 19 F.3d 305, (5 Cir. 1997)). Alcoholism does not substantially limit a major life activity when e abuse, alough frequent, is only temporarily incapacitating. Burch, 19 F.3d at 316; Goldsmi, 33 F. Supp. 2d at Permanency, not frequency, is e touchstone of a substantially limiting impairment. Burch, 19 F.3d at 316. Here, e facts reveal at despite Plaintiff s alcohol dependence, which began in his pre-teen years, he was not only able to secure employment wi e Sarasota County Sheriff s Office, but was also able to excel and advance during e 12 plus years of his employment. (See Dkt. 27, Brief Affidavit, Exs. A & B.) He consistently received performance evaluations of above average to excellent and was specifically commended for his analytical skills, decision-making skills, and leadership potential. (Brief Affidavit, Ex. A.) Plaintiff even earned a bachelor s degree in criminology while he was employed wi Defendant. (Id. at Ex. B.) A few days prior to e February 2008 incident at resulted in his termination, he received praise from his supervisor for his leadership in keeping his shift on track in adjusting to a new shift assignment. (Id. at Ex. A.) Furermore, only one of Plaintiff s 13 annual evaluations ever rated his attendance lower an satisfactory. (Id.) The comments in Plaintiff s evaluations do not support his contention at his alcoholism impaired his work. (Id.) Wi respect to any social difficulties Plaintiff may have had during his employment, he admitted at his divorce in 2005 was not related to his alcohol -9-
10 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 10 of 13 PageID 1118 dependence and he does not refer to any oer social difficulties in his deposition or psychiatric evaluation. (Knowles Depo., pp ) In fact, his deposition reveals at he was present at social functions, employment-related and oerwise (id. at 49-50), and his employment history describes his interactions wi peers and e public as professional and marked by respect (see Brief Affidavit, Ex. A.) In sum, while Plaintiff s alcohol dependence may have caused him intermittent periods of temporary incapacity, ese periodic issues did not rise to e level of establishing a permanent impairment and, us, did not constitute a disability under e ADA. Even if Plaintiff could demonstrate at his alcoholism constituted a disability, Defendant s alleged failure to force Plaintiff into counseling or treatment upon being notified of his alcoholism cannot form e basis of a discrimination claim. Plaintiff is solely responsible for e misconduct at led to his termination from employment. An employee who commits misconduct and en blames at misconduct on his alcoholism is not entitled to a reprieve in e form of an accommodation at is not available to e remaining employees who do not abuse alcohol. Peyton v. Otis Elevator Co., 72 F. Supp. 2d 915 (N.D. Ill. 1999); Adamczyk v. Chief, Baltimore County Police Dep t, 952 F. Supp. 259 (D. Md. 1997). In Peyton, e court determined at e ADA does not require an employer to give any special concessions for misconduct caused by alcohol or drug use. 72 F. Supp. 2d at The district court specifically found at an employer was not obligated under -10-
11 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 11 of 13 PageID 1119 e ADA to offer [e employee] treatment instead of termination just because it learned, after it had already reached a legitimate decision to fire him, at [e employee s] alcoholism was e cause of his problems. Id. at 921. The district court, in Adamczyk, similarly rejected an employee s argument at an alcoholic cannot be punished for off duty misconduct but must be referred for treatment, finding at such a conclusion was contrary to e established view at an employer may hold a drug addict or alcoholic to e same standard of performance and behavior to which it holds oers, even if any unsatisfactory performance or behavior is related to e person s drug addiction or alcoholism. 952 F. Supp. at 265. Furer, it was e express intent of Congress when it originally enacted e ADA at ere is no legal obligation under e ADA to provide rehabilitation for an employee who is using alcohol. See 135 Cong. Rec. S10777 (daily ed. Sept. 7, 1989); Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources, S. Rep (Aug. 30, 1989) at As Defendant points out, e undisputed facts are at e Sarasota County Sheriff s Office had an employee assistance program available to Plaintiff at any time roughout his employment and at voluntary access to is assistance could be obtained by making a telephone call. Essentially, Plaintiff s claim is at he should not have been terminated for his offduty misconduct because Defendant previously knew he was an alcoholic and e misconduct would have presumably been prevented had Defendant forced Plaintiff into counseling or treatment. Federal courts have noted at e results of treatment are -11-
12 Case 8:09-cv RAL-AEP Document 40 Filed 07/08/11 Page 12 of 13 PageID 1120 uncertain and do not conclude at treatment presumes successful treatment. Myers v. Hose, 50 F.3d 278, 283 (4 Cir. 1995); Fuller v. Frank, 916 F.2d 558, 562 (9 Cir. 1990). The Seven Circuit has cautioned against considering an ADA claim rough e speculative approach suggested by Plaintiff, at is, at if e Defendant had forced him into counseling or treatment two ings would have happened: (1) at e Plaintiff would have successfully completed treatment and (2) at e Plaintiff s later misconduct would not have occurred. Nawrot v. CPC Intern., 277 F.3d 896, 904 (7 Cir. 2002) (citing Sutton v. United Air Lines, Inc., 527 U.S. 471, (1999)). Employers are to consider only e measures actually taken and e consequences at actually follow. Nawrot, 277 F.3d at 904. Following is instruction, it is undisputed at Plaintiff was but a phone call away from receiving counseling or treatment for his alcoholism during e course of his 12 plus years of employment wi Defendant and at he always knew of e Sheriff s Office s disciplinary rules. He is solely responsible for, and was properly held accountable for, his misconduct on February 28, The ADA expressly provides at an employer may hold an employee to e same disciplinary standards as all oer employees even if e employee s unsatisfactory performance or behavior is related to drug use or alcoholism. 42 U.S.C (c)(4). The ADA simply does not shift e responsibility for an employee wi an alcohol problem to seek assistance to e employer upon learning of at problem. -12-
