Case Summary

On December 1, 2004 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed this lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri. EEOC sued UMB Financial Corporation (UMB) under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Title I of the Civil Rights Act of 1991. With the assistance of private counsel, the complainant intervened in the lawsuit shortly after the EEOC filed this lawsuit and sought declaratory and injunctive relief, as well as puniti…

On December 1, 2004 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) filed this lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Western District of Missouri. EEOC sued UMB Financial Corporation (UMB) under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Title I of the Civil Rights Act of 1991. With the assistance of private counsel, the complainant intervened in the lawsuit shortly after the EEOC filed this lawsuit and sought declaratory and injunctive relief, as well as punitive damages. Specifically, EEOC and the plaintiff claimed that the defendant engaged in unlawful employment practices by failing and refusing to hire the plaintiff to their sales department because of his disability, quadriplegia. The case was assigned to Judge Howard Sachs.

On November 28, 2005, EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgment. It alleged that it made a good faith effort to conciliate with the defendant to resolve the claims before filing suit. On January 25, 2006 Judge Sachs recused himself and the case was reassigned to Judge Gary A. Fenner. On March 17, 2006, Judge Fenner denied the motion for partial summary judgment and the case was stayed for 60 days. 432 F. Supp. 2d 948. The court found that EEOC refused to meet face-to-face with the defendant to conciliate, and therefore failed to satisfy its duty to conciliate in good faith.

In January 2007, the case then went to trial before a jury. At the close of the plaintiff's case, the defendant filed for judgment as a matter of law, which was denied. The jury found in favor of the defendant and awarded $11,478.87 in costs against the plaintiff.

The plaintiff appealed the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit on August 3, 2007 (Docket No. 07-02901). On March 13, 2009, the court issued an opinion affirming the lower court judgment. The case is now closed.
