Case Summary

The EEOC's Chicago district office sued CME Information Services, Inc., the Foundation For Advanced Medical Education, and the National Center for Advanced Medical Education, Inc. on October 23, 1998 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The EEOC's cause of action is unknown because the docket is the only document available for this case; it appears, however, that the defendant filed for bankruptcy at some point prior to the EEOC's motion for a default judgment on August 11, 1999. The plaintiff was awarded $156,707 in a default judgment on August 25, 1999.
