On February 1, 1993, Black Special Agents employed by the FBI filed a lawsuit under Title VII against the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Department of Justice, in the United States District Court, District of Columbia. The Plaintiffs, represented by private counsel and the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority, asked the Court of injunctive and declaratory relief, claiming that they had been discriminated against based upon their race. Specifically, Plaintiffs claimed that they had been denied promotions, transfers, assignments, training classes, bonuses, and awards.

On October 4, 1993, the Court (Judge Thomas F. Hogan) granted Defendant's motion for summary judgment and denied intervenor FBI Agent Association's motion for summary judgment. Johnson v. Reno, No. 93-0206, 1993 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 21464 (D. D.C. Oct. 4, 1993).

The parties settled on October 14, 1993.

On April 17, 1996, the Court granted in part and denied in part Defendant's motion to clarify certain parts of the settlement agreement entered into the parties in 1993. Johnson v. Reno, 1996 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 5346, No. 93-206 (D. D.C. Apr. 17, 1996). First, the Court found that the settlement agreement was intended to bar the bringing if disparate impact claims arising before March 5, 1991. Next, the Court decided that Plaintiffs would be precluded from bringing claims that arose during the relevant time period and in areas in which relief was granted in the settlement agreement.

The Court approved an amendment to the settlement agreed to by the parties on May 17, 2000. The amendment extended the time period for the FBI to implement portions of the settlement agreement that were still being implemented.

On December 14, 2000, the Court granted Plaintiffs' Motion to Authorize Disbursement from Plaintiffs' Monitoring Fund for Payment of Interim Costs and Fees.

The Court issued and approved a Mediation Settlement Agreement on April 30, 2001. The order detailed the Agreement, which provided that the FBI would allow class members who had pending race-based administrative EEO or future administrative EEO claims based on promotions, discipline, or performance appraisals to elect an alternative review of such claims.

On May 8, 2007, the parties stipulated that, as of September 30, 2006, the FBI had discharged all of its obligations set forth in the Settlement Agreement and in all subsequent and related agreements. There has been no further action in the case.
