In School Board v. Arline, the United States Supreme Court determined that people who suffer from tuberculosis can be protected from employment discrimination by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Arline is certain to affect people afflicted with AIDS-related disorders who suffer discrimination. In this Article, Professor Wasson examines the Arline decision and the effect it will have on AIDS-related discrimination. Also, he examines provisions of the United States Constitution, acts of Congress, state law, and municipal ordinances, all of which might provide alternative measures of protection for those who suffer AIDS-related discrimination.
