Darned If They Do and If They Don't

UPS, seeking to reduce its liability exposure in our litigious society, has had a safety policy in place prohibiting deaf employees from driving UPS vans.

Of course, this being a litigious society, UPS was sued for discrimination, and this week a court ruled that UPS is illegally discriminating against the deaf.

What do you want to bet that if a deaf driver has an accident because he or she did not respond in time to an audible warning, UPS will be sued for putting the public at unnecessary risk?
