Case Summary

The EEOC's Memphis district office sued Tyson Foods, Inc. on August 5, 1999 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. The docket is the only document available for this case, so the EEOC's cause of action is not known for certain. (The docket sheet does indicate that it is probably Title VII.) Tyson filed for summary judgment in February 2000, which was denied in April. The parties entered into a consent decree on August 14, 2000, the contents of which are unknown.
