The Philadelphia District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Oak Lane Printing and Letter Service Co., Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey in March 2006. The complaint alleged age discrimination in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA). Two employees, aged 55 and 60, were allegedly discharged while younger, similarly-situated employees were not. An unsuccessful settlement conference was held in December 2006. The defendant moved for summary judgment in May 2007, which was denied. The case was still ongoing in the district court as of 4/22/2008. In March, a jury trial date was set for 5/20/2008.
