Case Summary

In April 2006 the Milwaukee office of the EEOC brought this suit in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Iowa, alleging that the defendant, Von Maur, violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act by failing to hire black applicants because of their race. In July 2006, the case was consolidated for the purpose of discovery with a separate private action brought against Von Maur in the Southern District of Iowa, Ward v. Von Maur.

On September 22, 2008 the two cases were consolidated for trial, however, the parties settled on October 29, 2008. For information about the settlement, see Ward in this Clearinghouse.
