School being sued for ADA Violations - Wi-Fi Accommodations needed because of Sensitivity to Wi-Fi

Breaking: First Federal Case Filed Concerning A Child and the School Wireless System has been filed August 2015 .

Please see the complaint attached. Note the expert Doctor letters at the end of the complaint.

" Sometime in or around the spring term of 2013, Fay installed in its classrooms and in various other facilities a new Wi-Fi system, known as the “Aerohive Wi-Fi Network.” This is a high-density, industrial-capacity wireless system which, when operating, emits substantially greater radiofrequency/microwave emissions than the emissions coming from the more low-grade systems used in most homes and in certain other public places. Specifically, the Aerohive Network doubled the prior emissions in Fay classrooms from 2.5 GHz to 5 GHz.

Exposure to the emissions from the high- density Wi-Fi now used by Fay is dangerous to persons having an aggravated sensitivity to those emissions, as will be explained in more detail further below.
(24) Sometime after the above-described Wi-Fi system was installed, G started to experience occasional, troubling symptoms, which he reported to his parents when he came home from Fay at the end of the school day. These included headaches, itchy skin, and rashes. These symptoms receded after G had been home for several hours. Moreover, G had no such symptoms over the weekends, when he was not subjected to any such Wi-Fi system. These symptoms continued on and off for the remainder of the 2013 spring term but then abated at the beginning of the summer, when G was no longer in Fay classrooms."
