$94K+ Settlement Following Granting of Summary Judgment for Army Civilian Employee in EEOC/Disability Discrimination Case

July 2020

A Retired Lieutenant Colonel (O-5) who was working as a civilian employee for the Army pursued a claim of disability discrimination against the Army.  Pat Hughes was hired at the onset of the case guiding the client through the informal complaint, and eventually, into the formal complaint process requesting an administrative judge and hearing when the Army refused to resolve the matter.  After the Army fiercely litigated the matter, Pat was successful to get a pre-hearing ruling granting summary judgment in his client's favor on liability for disability discrimination.  Rather than proceeding to the hearing on damages, Pat then negotiated a $94K+ settlement to recover an award for damages and his client's full attorney's fees.
