Case Summary

In January 2001, the Phoenix District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against A-Rand, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona. The only document publicly available regarding this case is the docket; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. After some scheduling orders, the defendant filed a motion for summary judgment in late February 2002. The EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgment almost immediately afterward. In September 2002, the defendant's motion was denied, and the EEOC's motion was granted. It appears from the docket that the parties reached a tentative agreement in late December 2002. They reached a final settlement a few weeks later in mid January through a consent decree.
