In September 2005, the San Francisco office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against Merced County Community Action Agency in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated and retaliated against the claimant by failing to promote him because of his race (black) and discharging him because of his complaint. The case settled, and the parties dismissed the case in November 2005. Because the docket is the only accessible document, no information on the nature of the suit or the settlement agreement is available.
