After Gary Rowe had a kidney transplant, his medication was costing his employer more than $1,000 a month, and his supervisor frequently asked about his condition. When that supervisor had to cut a sales position, he eliminated Rowe's job. Those facts weren't enough to get Rowe a trial on discrimination charges. Reason: The company was able to show it had legitimate business reasons to back up its decision, mainly that the other two salespeople in his region would work better with the clients there. (Rowe v. The Marley Co., No. 00-1093, 4th Cir., 2000)
