Case Summary

On September 28, 2009, the EEOC filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona against Creative Networks LLC under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12112(a). The EEOC alleged that Creative Networks LLC violated the ADA by failing to provide reasonable accommodations to deaf and hard of hearing job applicants through its policy of capping the money spent on accommodations for job training at $200.

On September 28, 2009, the EEOC filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona against Creative Networks LLC under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. § 12112(a). The EEOC alleged that Creative Networks LLC violated the ADA by failing to provide reasonable accommodations to deaf and hard of hearing job applicants through its policy of capping the money spent on accommodations for job training at $200. The EEOC argued that such caps were both a violation of the ADA and had the effect of discriminating against deaf and hard-of-hearing applicants.

On January 14, 2011, the EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgement. The court denied that motion without prejudice on April 8, 2011 finding that the parties should conduct further discovery. In December 2011, both parties moved for summary judgement. On September 20, 2012, the court granted the EEOC's motion to partial summary judgment and denied the defendant's motion. The court found that Creative Networks did not provide sufficient evidence to create a issue of disputed fact as to whether the Defendant denied the charging party a reasonable accommodation in violation of the ADA.

On September 19, 2013, the District Court (Judge David A. Ezra) approved a Consent Decree, which included [1] an injunction that orders the Defendant to not discriminate against persons with disabilities, not to retaliate against those who complained of discrimination, [2] monetary relief for the woman discriminated against in the amount of $57,500, [3] Defendants will change their policies including removing any cap on spending for accommodations, [4] Defendants will train their employees in disability awareness and accommodations, and [5] Defendants will report on progress to the Regional District Attorney for the EEOC for Arizona during the term of the Decree. The Decree lasted for two years. It has since run its course without any further litigation. The case is now closed.

Minute Entry. Proceedings held before Judge Susan R Bolton: Telephonic Discovery Dispute Hearing held on 6/14/2010 at the request of Plaintiff's counsel. Discussion held. Regarding Plaintiff's request for documents sufficient to show Defendant's net worth from January 1, 2005, to the present, such documents need not be produced in advance of trial when it becomes apparent that the issue of punitive damages will be submitted to the jury. Regarding Plaintiff's request for applicant rosters and/or documents, Plaintiff's counsel is to submit a proposed letter to Defense counsel for review that is compliant with the current allegation(s) in the complaint. Regarding Plaintiff's request for personnel files of managers and employees, Defense counsel is directed to review the requested files for the information sought by Plaintiffs counsel and provide said information, if any, to Plaintiff's counsel by June 28, 2010. Regarding Plaintiff's interrogatory #11, the response/answer already provided by Defendant will be their answer unless supplemented by Defendant. Regarding Plaintiff's request for the identification of steps taken by Defendants to investigate the allegations, the Court declines to order the production because Defendant has asserted a work product privilege.
