In March 1999, the Seattle District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Hall-Copeland Ford Lincoln Mercury Mazda, d/b/a Hall-Copeland Auto Village, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho. The complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by subjecting the charging party, a female employee, to sexual harassment and retaliating against her when she complained of the harassment, resulting in her constructive discharge. After some scheduling orders, the defendant filed a motion for summary judgment in July 2000. However, the parties settled through a consent decree in November 2000 before the motion was ever resolved. We do not have a complete copy of the consent decree. It appears from the partial documentation that we do have that the defendant agreed to: post a Title VII notice, provide Title VII training for its managers, and pay the charging party $42,500.
