The Denver District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Eric Nelson News Inc., which is a paper mill in Omaha Nebraska, in January of 2000, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska. The only document available from PACER is the docket, which suggests that the case was brought under Title VII. Two main events shaped the outcome of the litigation: first, the defendant moved for summary judgment on January 5, 2001; second, there was a settlement conference which resulted in a settlement being reached on January 8, 2001. The court entered a Consent Decree on March 19, 2001.
