A judge ruled that a former CIA employee with narcolepsy cannot pursue discrimination charges against the CIA because his claims violate state secrets privilege, reports Courthouse News.

“The parties agreed that as an accommodation of Plaintiff’s disability he could take brief naps at his desk, provided that he make-up the time either by foregoing a lunch break and/or working beyond his scheduled tour of duty,” the complaint says.

But between 2009 and 2011, Abilt says, CIA supervisors began harassing him for doing just that. Abilt also claims that as a black man, he was subject to different terms of employment than white coworkers.
