A private law firm brought this suit on behalf of the EEOC against Gaming Entertainment Delaware (doing business as Midway Slots and Simulcast) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware in April 2002. The complaint is unavailable, but according to the 2002 EEOC General Counsel Report, it alleged national origin harassment in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
