In May 1999 the Houston office of the EEOC brought this suit against Cooper Cameron Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The complaint is unavailable, but court documents indicate that the EEOC alleged that the defendant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by refusing to let an employee who had undergone a double hip replacement return to work. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment, which was granted in March 2000. The EEOC filed a notice of appeal in May 2000, but the appeal was later dismissed.
