In April 1997, the Los Angeles office of the EEOC brought this ADA suit against Hertz Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The complaint alleged that the Hertz Custom Benefit Program's $150 cap on reimbursement of hearing aids constituted an unlawful disability based distinction in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The parties reached a settlement agreement and dismissed the case in August 1998. Because the docket is the only accessible document, no more information on the nature of the suit or the settlement agreement is available.
