Jury to Decide Whether Prosthetic Hand Made Man Unfit for FBI in Discrimination Suit

Justin Slaby

Was a former Army Ranger who had his hand blown off in a training accident unsuitable for the FBI?

A jury is expected to make that decision today in the discrimination case filed by Justin Slaby, who said he was ejected from an FBI training academy after authorities learned he had a prosthetic arm, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Slaby attempted to show in court that his disabled hand was as capable to fire a weapon and perform other duties as a real hand.

FBI instructors and trainers said Slaby was unable to safely fire a gun, a claim that Slaby denies.

Slaby said after the trial that he’s remaining strong.

“I have no emotions or feelings right now, I’m just kind of focused,” he told a reporter. “I’ve been continually thinking that it’s amazing this had to come this far. It didn’t need to happen.”
