Case Summary

The EEOC Baltimore office filed this suit on May 3, 2001 in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, Baltimore Division. After noting that the parties had settled in principal, the court dismissed the case subject to reopening if the parties could not reach a final settlement agreement. The parties moved for an extension of time once before notifying the court that a final agreement had been reached, and the case was closed for good on May 6, 2002. Neither the complaint nor the settlement agreement is currently available.
