When no amplifier was installed Mr. Harbrecht asked the FHC to help. In November of 2000 FHC staff made another request for reasonable accommodation. Ericka M. Jackson of Sommers, Schwartz, Silver & Schwartz filed on behalf of Mr. Harbrecht in Washtenaw County Circuit Court, the case was assigned to Judge David S. Swartz. The amplifier was installed after Mr. Harbrecht filed suit.
