The EEOC brought this suit against Ford Motor Credit Company in September 2006 in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee (Nashville). The case was assigned to Judge Aleta A. Trauger. The complaint alleged violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act for failure to keep confidential the medical information of an employee with HIV. The complainant intervened, alleging violations of the ADA and the Tennessee Human Rights Act, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. After the court denied the defendant's motion for summary judgment and the parties agreed to dismiss the intervenor-plaintiff's state claims, the parties entered into settlement negotiations before the Magistrate Judge. These failed in March 2008, and the parties proceeded to prepare for trial.

In August 2008, though, the parties negotiated a settlement. The parties continued to disagree as to the lawfulness of the defendant's activities, however both desired to settle to avoid continued expense of litigation. The defendant's agreement to a settlement was not to be construed as an admission of a violation of Title VII. The consent was set to be binding for two years from the date of entry on September 17, 2008. It contained provisions for an injunction against discrimination with respect to disclosure of medical information as well as training. The consent decree also awarded $75,000 in damages to the plaintiff and required two annual reports to the EEOC. Parties agreed to pay their own attorney's costs and fees. The consent decree has since run its course and the case is presumed closed.
