The Memphis District Office filed this action in November 2002 in the District Court for the Western District of Tennessee against Bud Davis Cadillac, a car dealer. The Defendant was charged with discriminating on the basis of race after firing the complainant for reasons that it apparently considered insufficient grounds for dismissing a white employee. The action lasted until July of 2003, when it was resolved by a consent decree. The complainant was awarded $26,000. The injunctive relief included a one-time training program for all employees, expungement of the complainant's personnel file, and posting a Notice.
