In rare cases, ASA will continue to support patients in challenging the unlawful termination from a job, beyond writing a letter to the employer. One such case is that of Jesse Ewing, which involved his termination and the denial of his unemployment insurance benefits because of his failed drug test. No contention was made that he was under the influence of marijuana on the job. ASA appealed the denial of the unemployment insurance benefits and won.
