The EEOC's New York district office sued Allied Systems, Inc. on September 26, 1997 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it discriminated based on a physical injury by failing to reinstate an employee after disability leave due to risk of future injury. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment on December 17, 1998, which was granted on February 19, 1999. The EEOC filed an appeal on April 15, 1999, and the parties reached a settlement on appeal on August 23, 1999.
