“A ‘qualified individual’ means ‘an individual who, with or without reasonable accommodations, can perform the essential functions of the employment position that such individual holds or desires.’ In Plaintiff’s Third Amended and Restated Complaint, Plaintiff adds the allegation that she ‘required the cane to perform the tasks within the course and scope of employment at Defendant’s facility.’ Taking this allegation as true in a light most favorable to Plaintiff, a plausible inference could be made that Plaintiff could perform her essential job functions with the accommodation of a cane but Defendant did not wish to make such accommodations.” 2016 WL 3407764, at *3 (citations omitted).
