The Dallas district office of the EEOC brought this suit against the Exxon Mobil Corporation in September 2006, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. The complaint alleged that Exxon Mobil violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act by employing a policy of prohibiting pilots, including the complainants in this case, from piloting corporate plans once they reached the age of sixty. The complainants were forced, due to this policy, into involuntary retirement. This case is still ongoing in the district court as of April 22, 2008. Exxon Mobil filed a motion for summary judgment in August 2007, which is still pending as of April 22, 2008. The most recent proceedings in the case are the filing of documents in opposition to and in support of the motion for summary judgment.
