Appellant appeals the district court's adverse order granting summary judgment in her action filed pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C.A. §§ 12101-12117 (West 1995). We have reviewed the record and the district court's opinion and find no reversible error. Appellant failed to establish a prima facie case of discrimination. See Ennis v. National Ass'n of Bus. & Educ. Radio, 53 F.3d 55, 58 (4th Cir.1995). Moreover, we find that the district court's assessment against Appellant of the reasonable cost of the preparation of the employer's successful summary judgment motion was not an abuse of the court's discretion. See Fed.R.Civ.P. 54(d); 28 U.S.C. § 1920 (1994); Oak Hall Cap and Gown Co. v. Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc., 899 F.2d 291, 296 (4th Cir.1990). We dispense with oral argument because the facts and legal contentions are adequately presented in the materials before the Court and argument would not aid the decisional process.
