In September 2001, the Memphis (along with the Little Rock) office of the EEOC brought this suit against Southern Mortgage Company of Arkansas d/b/a Southern Mortgage Company and Southern Mortgage Co of Central Louisiana in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Arkansas. The defendants filed four motions to dismiss the suit in December 2001 and January 2002, and they were converted into motions for summary judgment in March 2002. The court denied the defendant's motions for summary judgment in May 2002 and entered the settlement agreement between the parties in October 2002. No information was made available pertaining to the nature of the suit or the Settlement Agreement.
