The Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and San Diego offices of the EEOC brought this suit against Republic Services, Inc. and Republic Silver State Disposal, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada in September 2004. The complaint alleged that the defendants discharged and/or did not allow employees over 40 to transfer because of their age in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The defendants filed a motion for summary judgment in May 2006, which was denied. The court consolidated this case with a private party suit, 2:04-cv-01479 (D.C. Nev. October 27, 2004) in October 2006. The defendants moved again for summary judgment in September 2007, which was still pending in the district court as of April 22, 2008.
