In December of 2015, it was confirmed that Steve Sarkisian had filed a lawsuit against USC in which he claimed that the university illegally fired him because, in part, they did not accommodate his disability. Specifically, the coach, who had recently finished a stint in rehab, acknowledged at the time that he was an alcoholic and claimed his firing violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The lawsuit, the claims in which the university at the time described as “patently untrue,” was seeking up to $30 million in damages, including $12.6 million from the remainder of his contract as well as nearly $18 million in unspecified damages.

Monday, as reported, “an arbitrator… denied every single one of Sark's claims — explaining the coach was ‘not terminated on the basis of any disability,' but rather for misconduct in breach of his contract.” The arbitrator, in denying Sarkisian any type of monetary damages from the university, further stated that California's disability laws do “not insulate the failure to control a controllable disability nor afford an employee a second chance to control a disability in the future.” arkisian-gets-nada-in-30-million-lawsuit-against-usc/
