EEOC's Charlotte, NC office filed this Title VII racial discrimination lawsuit against the defendant 2M Dry Wall, Inc. at the United States District Court for the North Carolina Middle District (Durham) on 08/29/2001.

The case was referred to mediation but the parties did not reach a settlement agreement until the settlement conference presided by District Judge N.C. Tilley, Jr. on 12/19/2002. A consent decree was executed on the same day.

Under the one-year consent decree, the defendant agreed to pay the individual complainant $15,000 and expunge any information relating to the lawsuit from his personnel record. Additionally, the defendant agreed to provide a training program, post employee notice of the lawsuit, and provide semi-annual reports to the EEOC.
