Case Summary

The Los Angeles District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against the Riviera Operating Corporation, which owns and operates the Riviera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, in September of 2002, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. The suit alleged that the company knew of harassment towards the complainant based on her sex and age, and in violation of Title VII and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The trial was rescheduled six times and eventually the parties reached a settlement. The only document pertaining to the settlement is the record of the minutes from a court hearing the day before the settlement was entered, which says that the judgment was for the plaintiff in the amount of $150,0001. This appears to be the only relief obtained in the case.
