In the fall of 2000, the parties entered into a memorandum of agreement (MOA) incorporating the terms of a court-supervised consent decree settling Ledford, et al. v. City of Highland Park, No. 00 C 4212 (N.D. Ill), litigation brought by private plaintiffs raising similar issues. The MOA was terminated in December 2004.
