Case Summary

In March 2001, the Louisville (and Indianapolis) office of the EEOC brought this suit against Sonic Drive-In et al. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky. In May 2002, Sonic Drive-In filed a cross claim against Barry Fergueson. Fergueson filed motions to dismiss both claims against himself in June 2002. The court denied Fergueson's motions for summary judgment against the EEOC and granted in part and denied in part Fergueson's motion to dismiss the cross claim. The case settled by entry of a consent decree in October 2002. No information was made available pertaining to the nature of the suit or the consent decree.
