Case Summary

In May 1999, the Houston District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Gentle Home Healthcare, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. The case was administratively closed in February 2001 due to the plaintiff's bankruptcy status. The parties voluntarily dismissed the case in early July 2003.
