In determining whether a genuine issue of the material fact whether a genuine issue of material fact occurs regarding the reasonableness of the requested accommodation, we first examine whether Turners facial presenting that her proposed accommodation is possible.

In the carbonated soft drinks industry, Coke Cola and Pepsi Co are the biggest players in the market for aerated beverages.
