The Detroit Office of the EEOC filed this action in the District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. The Defendant was Guardsmark, Inc., a security service provider. The lawsuit was filed in October of 1996 and was eventually resolved through a voluntary settlement in April of 1998. Both sides filed for summary judgment, but the agreement was reached before any ruling was issued. The complainant did not intervene in the case. The docket was the only case document available so it is unknown what the allegations were or what type of relief was granted.
