Case Summary

On September 22, 1995, the U.S. Department of Justice ("D.O.J.") filed a lawsuit under Title VII in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey against New Jersey Department of Human Services and Commissioner of personnel. The D.O.J. sought injunctive relief, alleging that the defendant had violated Title VII by discriminating on the basis of race.

On September 28, 1995, the district court (Judge Alfred M. Wolin) entered a consent decree ordering the defendant to: (1) provide promotions and monetary and other relief to eight named charging parties; (2) develop lawful selection procedures for the hiring and promotion of applicants to positions in the Family Service Specialist series.

The docket ends on July 26, 2004, where mail sent to Nancy E. Whatley was returned as undeliverable. We have no further information.
