In September 2006, the EEOC's Seattle Field Office filed suit in U.S. District Court, District of Montana, against Les Schwab Tire Centers of Montana, Inc. and Les Schwab Tire Warehouse, Inc. The complaint was brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act; it alleged that the defendant had harassed a Native American employee because of his race, and then retaliated against him when he complained.

The employee intervened in the EEOC's suit. The defendant filed two separate motions for partial summary judgment. Both of these motions were still pending as of April 22, 2008.
