The EEOC brought this suit against Ford Motor Credit Company in September 2006 in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee (Nashville). The complaint alleged violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act for failure to keep medical information of an employee with HIV confidential. The complainant intervened, alleging violations of the ADA and the Tennessee Human Rights Act, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. After the court denied the defendant's motion for summary judgment and the parties agreed to dismiss the intervenor-plaintiff's state claims, the parties failed to reach a settlement agreement during a settlement conference before the Magistrate Judge in March 2008. The case was set for trial in May 2008.
