Chester Widomski appeals from the District Court’s grant of summary judgment in favor of Defendant‐Appellee the State University of New York (SUNY) at Orange, also known as Orange County Community College (“OCCC”), on his claims of discrimination on the basis of a “perceived disability” and retaliation in violation of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”), 42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq.
Widomski enrolled as a full‐time student in OCCC’s two‐year Medical Laboratory Technology (“MLT”) program in the fall of 2007 in order to become a licensed medical laboratory technician. In fall 2008, Widomski began the clinical portion of the program, a course called Clinical Training I. Widomski was assigned to the Catskill Regional Medical Center, where Rebecca Sander, an employee of the Center (and not OCCC), served as his proctor. As part of the course, students were required to submit weekly clinical summary reports signed by their proctors accompanied by weekly narratives relating to the work performed.
