In September 2004, the Indianapolis District Office of the EEOC filed this suit against Damping Technologies, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana. The EEOC's complaint alleged discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Specifically, the defendant terminated the charging party, a female employee, in retaliation for filing a complaint of discrimination. The parties participated in mediation and finally settled the case through a consent decree in May 2005.

The three-year decree, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: post a notice of the non-discrimination policy; pay the charging party $65,000; provide Title VII, ADEA, and ADA training for its supervisors and managers; and report to the EEOC at specified times.
