Lawyer settles 'Apprentice' suit

QUICK TAKES

March 11, 2005|From Associated Press

A quadriplegic attorney settled his lawsuit against producers of NBC's "The Apprentice" after they agreed to make clear the program accepts applications from the disabled.

James Schottel Jr., whose federal lawsuit claimed the show's online application was discriminatory in requiring "excellent physical" health of would-be contestants, said this week that producers agreed to insert a sentence into the show's rules encouraging people with disabilities to try out.

Mark Burnett, who produces the show along with star Donald Trump, said "it was never our intent to exclude from consideration persons with disabilities."
