The EEOC's Kansas City, Kansas and St. Louis, Missouri offices jointly filed this Title VII lawsuit against the defendants, Earl Scheib of Kansas, Inc. and its parent company Earl Scheib, Inc. in the United States District Court for the District of Kansas (Kansas City) on 09/30/1999. Without access to the complainant or the consent decree, we have no information about the specific allegations or the type(s) of relief obtained except that the individual complainant did not intervene. The defendants filed 12(b)(1) and 12(b)(6) motions at the outset of the litigation, citing that the plaintiff got the parent company's name wrong in its initial pleading. The district court denied both motions on 03/15/2000. EEOC v. Earl Scheib of Kansas, et al, 2000 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 4917 (2000). Soon thereafter, the parties indicated their intent to settle and the court ordered administrative termination of the case on 06/23/2000. The case was finally resolved on 07/25/2000 by a consent decree with a two year term. The docket did not detail the content of the decree except that the defendant's Kansas company shall affirmatively notify any purchasers of the obligations of the decree prior to any sale.
