In September 2000, the New Orleans District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Conagra Poultry Company in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. The complaint alleged that the defendant failed to accommodate the charging party's disability after she had a leg amputated. In addition, the defendant allegedly constructively discharged the charging party by negatively affecting the terms and conditions of her employment after she requested accommodations. The charging party intervened in the suit in February 2001. After a status conference, it appears the parties agreed to settle because the Court entered a sixty day judgment of dismissal in September 2001. The parties voluntarily dismissed the case in November 2002. However, we do not have a copy of the settlement agreement; therefore, the terms of the settlement are unknown.
