Plaintiff Tracy McDonald appeals the district court's grant of summary judgment for her employer, defendant John Potter, Postmaster General of the United States Postal Service (the "Postal Service") on her Rehabilitation Act claims. McDonald alleges that the Postal Service failed to reasonably accommodate her two alleged disabilities: (1) migraines induced by a sensitivity to fragrances (i.e. fragrances worn by her coworkers, cleaning chemicals); and (2) a back condition. She further alleges that the Postal Service discriminated and retaliated against her due to these disabilities.

Marbley, United States District Judge for the Southern District of Ohio, sitting by designation. * No. 07-6146 McDonald v.
