The EEOC's Phoenix district office sued Pimalco, Inc., an Arizona aluminum manufacturer, on August 26, 2003 in the U.S. District Court for the district of Arizona. The docket is the only document available for this case, however its summary of the consent decree states the EEOC's cause of action. Pimalco allegedly violated that Americans with Disabilities Act when it discriminated against an employee because of a disability (diabetes) by terminating his employment. The parties settled their dispute through a consent judgment on February 17, 2004, which stipulated that Pimalco would pay $70,000 to the aggrieved employee, provide ADA training for its management, review it's EEO policy, and report its progress to the EEOC semi-annually.
