The University Medical Center in Las Vegas has agreed to pay $150,000 to settle a lawsuit with an employee who suffered severe claustrophobia while at work. In her lawsuit, the plaintiff claims she informed managers at the hospital that she could not work in the small cubicle she was assigned due to her medically-diagnosed claustrophobia. The plaintiff had documented proof from multiple doctors of her condition, which, if documented, is covered under the Americans With Disabilities Act.
