The EEOC's Memphis district office sued USCO Logistics Services, Inc. on December 2, 1998 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated the Americans with Disabilities Act when it discriminated based on disability by terminating an employee because the employee had AIDS. The suit went to trial in November, 1999 and the jury found for the Defendant. Immediately after the court entered judgment, the EEOC moved for a new trial, which was granted in December 1999. Shortly thereafter, the parties entered into a consent decree on January 27, 2000, which stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $45,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with the ADA and provide ADA training to its managers.
