The Birmingham office of the EEOC brought this suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama against Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. in April 2005. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against employees in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967. More specifically, the complaint alleged the defendant terminated the employment of four employees based on their ages. The defendant filed a motion for summary judgment which was denied in January 2005. This case consolidated with a suit brought on behalf of the complainants by a private attorney (2:05-cv-00714-WMA). The parties attended mediation in March 2007 and the case was subsequently dismissed. The terms of the settlement are unknown.
