Gillette Man Wins $1.2 Million ADA Award

A federal jury has awarded a Gillette man $1.2 million in damages in his wrongful termination lawsuit against a heavy equipment dealer.

The jury last week found that Casper-based Wyoming Machinery Co. violated the Americans with Disabilities Act in terminating Robert G. Bush after he underwent open-heart surgery.

The Associated Press reports that attorneys for both sides declined to comment on grounds that the federal judge who presided over the case has not yet entered a judgment and the defense hasn’t filed post-trial motions.

According to court papers, Bush began employment with Wyoming Machinery in 1999. He underwent open heart surgery in October 2006 and was absent from work for all but two days during the following 21 months.

Bush was terminated in July 2008.
