On September 21, 2006, the Atlanta office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit under Title VII against AAA Parking in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. The EEOC alleged that the defendants had violated the rights of the complainant, who worked as a cashier in their parking garage, by refusing to provide her with religious accommodations and for terminating her on the basis of her religion.

On May 22, 2007, the parties entered into a consent decree, which they filed with court. The Court adopted the decree on June 7, 2007, and dismissed the case. Under the terms of the decree, the defendants agreed to pay the complainant $29,500.00 in non-wage compensatory damages. The defendants agreed to hold at least one training session to instruct all personnel at its Atlanta facility on their rights and obligations arising under Title VII. The defendants agreed to post notice of the EEO laws in a conspicuous place in their business. The EEOC was to be granted access to the defendants' Atlanta facilities in order to ensure that the EEO notice was properly posted. The defendants agreed to certify to the EEOC in writing within 15 days of the training that they had complied with the training requirements of the consent decree. The defendants agreed to provide the EEOC reports every 6 months of every incident wherein an employee requested religious accommodation in the workplace, as well as a full report of how they handled each request.
