The Seattle District Office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against Teijin Seiki America in March 2000, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated and harassed the charging party, a Japanese woman in her thirties, on the basis of national origin, race, and sex and also retaliated against her for complaining of the discrimination. The court entered a consent decree in April 2000.

The consent decree required the defendant to refrain from discrimination, carry out anti-discrimination policies and procedures, institute training on employment discrimination, report bi-annually to the EEOC on the implementation of the consent decree, post notice of the consent decree, and pay the charging party $56,667 (and $28,333 to the charging party's counsel).
