Case Summary

The Baltimore District Office of the EEOC filed this case in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. The defendant was Alltel Telecom Information Services, Inc., a network telecommunications business serving customers in 26 states. It was alleged that the complainant, a black male, was discharged on the basis of race. The lawsuit was filed in September 2004 and was resolved by consent decree in April 2005. The complainant, who did not intervene in the case, was awarded a total of $137,000. The consent decree was not available, and therefore the full terms are not known. The duration of the consent decree was two years.

The decree was entered in 2002 and scheduled to last 2007. No further docket entries exist, so the case is closed.
