In October 1997, the Birmingham Office of the EEOC brought this suit against BFI Waste Systems of North America, Inc. in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Alabama. The charging party intervened in the lawsuit in December 1997. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. Following denial of the EEOC's motion to publish a notice to potential class members and the voluntary dismissal of the charging party, the defendant and EEOC settled the lawsuit in September of 1998 through a consent decree. We do not have a copy of the consent decree; therefore, the exact settlement terms involved are unknown.
