Former Marine Jonathan Brown was discharged from the military about two years ago after injuries to his eyes left him unable to serve. And it's that disability, Brown is claiming in a recently filed lawsuit, that prompted his employer to fire him from the gym that he was managing last summer.

Brown had been employed by New Life Fitness World in Lexington, S.C., for nearly two years when he was called into the office of the newly hired regional manager and was told on July 30 that his employment "wouldn't work out." Brown had just returned from a regular doctor's appointment at a nearby Veterans Affairs hospital, when his boss, Jonathan Moreno, said he had to let Brown go.
