In an action brought against an airline by a former employee alleging that the termination of her employment violated her rights under the ADA because she was suffering from lupus, dismissal of the action is affirmed where: 1) an injunction is effective to bar plaintiff's claims as she failed to pursue her employment discrimination claims through the bankruptcy proceeding; and 2) the district court did not err in rejecting plaintiff's contention that she nonetheless should be able to litigate her claims based on the doctrines of judicial estoppel and unclean hands.
