In August 2001, the Cleveland District Office filed this lawsuit against Sundance Rehabilitation Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio alleging violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The complaint specifically alleged that the defendant required terminated employees to sign a waiver of claims against the defendant, including EEO violations, in order to receive severance pay. Following discovery and motions for summary judgment for both parties, the District Court granted summary judgment to the EEOC in July 2004. The defendant appealed the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in September 2004. The Court of Appeals reversed the District Court's judgment in October 2006. The U.S. Supreme Court granted an extension of time to file a petition for a writ of certiorari in June 2007. However, the docket does not indicate that this option was exercised.
