A quadriplegic attorney from St. Louis wants the chance to either be hired or told "you're fired."

James Schottel is suing producers of Donald Trump's NBC hit reality show "The Apprentice," claiming auditions discriminate by requiring "excellent physical" health of would-be contestants.

Schottel's suit — filed last week — seeks a preliminary injunction that would force producers of the show to drop requirements that would exclude people in a similar physical condition as him.

Schottel isn't seeking any monetary damages, only enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
