In September 2004, the EEOC brought this suit against AT Systems, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware. The EEOC alleged that the defendant violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) by subjecting the charging party, an employee of fifty-five years of age, to disparate treatment in terms of pay and by terminating him because of his age. After some scheduling orders and discovery, the parties settled through a consent decree in August 2005.

The two-year decree, containing non-discrimination and non-retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: post a notice of the consent decree, provide ADEA training to corporate security and human resource employees, and report to the EEOC at specified intervals. In addition, the defendant agreed to pay the charging party $60,000 in back wages and $500 for attorneys' fees.
