Before Boudin, Ripple, *fn1 and Selya, Circuit Judges.

Myriam Gomez-Gonzalez, along with her husband, Gerardo Arribas, instituted this action in the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico against Ms. Gomez’s former employer, Rural Opportunities, Inc. (“ROI”), alleging violations of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (“Title VII”), 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-2, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (“ADEA”), 29 U.S.C. § 623(a), the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), 42 U.S.C. § 12112, and the Employment Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), 29 U.S.C. § 1132(a)(1)(B); they also sought damages for wrongful discharge and mental distress under Puerto Rico law. ROI moved for summary judgment on all of the plaintiffs’ claims. The district court granted ROI’s motion for summary judgment on all of the federal claims and dismissed the pendent state claims without prejudice. Ms. Gomez and Mr. Arribas timely appealed. For the reasons set forth in the following opinion, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
