In February 1999, the Atlanta District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Whiten Dodge, Inc. and SouthTowne Motors of Stone Mountain, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The only document publicly available regarding this case is the docket; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. The charging party intervened in the suit in June 1999. After some discovery and scheduling orders, SouthTowne Motors was voluntarily dismissed from the case in early June 2000. The remaining parties settled in late June 2000 through a consent decree. It appears from the docket that the decree contained a non-discrimination clause and required the defendant to pay $46,000.
