The Birmingham office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Alabama Middle District against Macon County Greyhound Park, d/b/a Victoryland. The complaint was filed in October 1997 alleging violations of Title VII for pregnancy and sex discrimination. One employee was allowed to intervene in the suit on December 1, 1997. Defendant filed for summary judgment in June 1998 but in August 1998 the parties entered a consent decree and the motion was denied as moot.

The parties entered into a consent decree on August 31, 1998. The Defendant was required to pay the charging party an agreed upon amount, sponsor one day of sex discrimination training for its managers and supervisors, post a notice of non-discrimination at its facility, not retaliate against plaintiff or anyone involved in the suit, and provide the charging party with a neutral employment reference.
