The San Antonio Field Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Halliburton Energy Services in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas in July 2001. The complaint alleged that the Defendant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by terminating the complainant, who suffered from panic anxiety disorder and depression. The complainant was disabled under the ADA, had a record of a disability, and was regarded by her employer as disabled. The parties made a joint motion to stay proceedings in July 2002 pending a final settlement, which was reached in February 2003. According to the settlement agreement, Halliburton Energy Services agreed to pay $35,000 to the deceased complainant's husband to resolve the suit.
