The New Orleans District Office of the EEOC brought this case against the Louisiana Suburban Press, d/b/a Louisiana State Newspapers, in September 1999 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. The nature of the allegations is unclear, except that they arose under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The parties consented to have the case tried before a Magistrate Judge. After some discovery disputes were resolved, the Magistrate Judge held a settlement conference in October 2000, and the parties apparently reached a tentative agreement just before the scheduled trial. It appears that there was some difficulty reducing the agreement to writing. Eventually the parties agreed on a consent decree and agreed that it would not be made public (at least in part). We do not have a copy of that decree, but it was evidently entered in May 2001.
