Bank of America may have given out money like a drunken sailor before the federal bailout, but it held the line with Steve Valdez. The bank refused to allow Valdez to cash a check after he stubbornly refused to give them his thumbprint to confirm his identification. His feeble excuse is that he has no arms, let alone thumbs.
A BofA manager refused to allow the transaction until Valdez could come up with a thumb. This would seem to me to be a clear case of discrimination against the disabled. Presumably, a lawyer will not require a thumbprint before Valdez sues.
