A Chartiers man claims in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday that the Peters Township Sanitary Authority violated federal rehabilitation laws when it fired him instead of accommodating the disability he suffers from a 2011 accident.

James B. Levers, 55, says in the lawsuit that he worked for the authority from 1993, but spent a year on medical leave due to leg injuries he suffered in the accident. The authority fired him in November after he told manager James Miskis that he would probably suffer from physical limitations for the rest of his life, the lawsuit says.

Miskis and Keith Bassi, the authority's solicitor, couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
