Case Summary

In March 1999, the Chicago Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against AE Staley Manufacturing Company in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Illinois. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. The complaining party intervened in the lawsuit in June 1999. Following some discovery and motions for summary judgment by the defendant and by the EEOC, the intervenor and defendant came to an agreement and dismissed part of the lawsuit in March 2000. Months later, summary judgment was granted for the defendant.
