On July 22, 2005, the Detroit and Indianapolis offices of the EEOC filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan against the Magna Donnelly Corp., Inc., a for profit corporation, under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). The complaint alleged that the employer had failed to give a physically disabled employee a reasonable accommodation and discharged her in violation of the ADA. EEOC asked the court to permanently enjoin the employer from engaging in unlawful employment practices and grant relief to those employees who had been discriminated against.

On October 26, 2005, the case was consolidated with the ongoing litigation in EEOC v. Magna Donnelly Inc., EE-MI-0048. Both cases had been brought under the ADA in the same court, and dealt with the same corporation's employment discrimination practices and policies.
