One of our top five most intriguing cases of 2010 – EEOC o/b/o Serrano, et al v. Cintas Corp., 2010 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 18130 (E.D. Mich. Mar. 2, 2010) – heated up again last week by virtue of a decision by Judge Sean Cox from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan to award the Cintas Corporation $2,638,443 in fees and costs. The ruling is a resounding defeat for the EEOC’s systemic litigation program.
