The San Antonio office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, against Nationwide Housing Systems, Inc. The complaint, filed in March 2000, alleged age discrimination in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act; specifically that Defendant failed to hire the charging party because of his age (over 40).

The case was referred to mediation in July 2000 and in January 2001 the parties entered into a consent decree. The decree, which was valid for two years, enjoined Defendant from discriminating against its employees based on their age, and required Defendant to pay the charging party $6,500, provide EEO training for its employees, and post a notice of non-discrimination at its facility.
