Case Summary

In March 1999, the Atlanta office of the EEOC brought this suit against BRG Operations of Georgia, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. The claimant intervened in the EEOC's suit in January 2000. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment in February 2000, and the court granted summary judgment in favor in the defendant in August 2000. The EEOC filed a motion to amend/alter judgment in August 2000, but the court denied the motion in October 2000. Because the docket is the only accessible document, no information on the nature of the suit or the consent decree is available.
