In August 2005, the EEOC filed suit against aerospace manufacturer Lockheed Martin in U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii, alleging that a black employee was subjected to racial harassment in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. The complaint further alleged that the employee was laid off in retaliation for complaining about the discrimination. The charging party intervened in the case in addition to filing his own suit (1:05-cv-00496). The two cases were subsequently consolidated.

After cross-motions for summary judgment were both denied, the parties reached a settlement, and a consent decree was entered in January 2008. The aggrieved employee was awarded $2.5 million; the defendant also agreed to implement complaint procedures for employees who feel they have been discriminated against, to provide EEO training for all employees, and to submit semi-annual reports to the EEOC detailing any incidents of racial harassment.
