I wrote previously about a San Antonio law firm that refused to provide documents requested by the EEOC. The EEOC even filed suit in federal court to get those documents. Well, the Malaise law firm thought better about it and provided the requested documents, after all. Russ Cawyer reports that the EEOC moved to dismiss its motion when the firm did later provide the documents.
As I mentioned earlier, it is hard to understand how the law firm can claim privacy concerns when all information and documents acquired by the EEOC are treated as confidential. Indeed, it is likely now that the EEOC will view those documents with some suspicion. The employer may have made their position worse with this resistance.
