LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A government worker in Nevada who says her office cubicle made her claustrophobic is going to get a $150,000 settlement.
  
Commissioners in Nevada's Clark County have approved the payment to settle a lawsuit by a former University Medical Center data technician.
  
Jayne Feshold says she was diagnosed with claustrophobia after she was required to work in a small cubicle workspace instead of a more open environment.
  
The Las Vegas Sun reports that Feshold told her employers she had to be assigned to work in an open space under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  
The hospital countered that she did not have a disability and Feshold was fired.
