On August 31, 2007, the EEOC filed a complaint in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended, against Defendant Touro College. The EEOC claimed that Defendant engaged in unlawful employment practices on the basis of sex, as well as retaliation, which adversely affected an individual on whose behalf the case was brought.

On March 11, 2008, the individual at issue also filed a complaint against Defendant as a plaintiff-intervenor.

The District Court (Judge Denny Chin) approved a settlement agreement between the parties under a consent decree on September 23, 2008. The decree provided generally that Defendant was enjoined from both future discrimination on the basis of discrimination and retaliation. The decree also required Defendant to post a notice of this decree, circulate a memo to its employees setting forth the requirements of Title VII, display an EEOC poster in its offices, and adopt an anti-discrimination policy and complaint procedure. It was also provided that Defendant give six hours of training plus six hours annually on anti-discrimination laws for its human resources employees, as well as two hours of such training and one hour annually for all other employees. Furthermore, Defendant was required to pay a total monetary sum of $415,000. The consent decree was to remain in effect for a period of three years.
