Case Summary

In April 1998, the Detroit office of the EEOC brought this suit against Starboard Industries, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. The court stayed the case after the defendant filed a voluntary petition in bankruptcy in November 1998. After the EEOC filed a motion to lift the stay, the parties settled by entry of a consent decree in December 1999. Because the docket is the only accessible document, no information on the nature of the suit or the consent decree is available.
