In February 2001, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) district office New Orleans, Louisiana brought this action against the Jonesboro Manufacturing Company in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana. The complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when it discriminated against her because of her sex. Specifically, she alleged that a male coworker repeatedly made inappropriate sexual comments to her, and after she complained nothing was done. The defense immediately filed a motion to dismiss for failure to timely serve the summons and complaint. While this motion was pending, the EEOC voluntarily dismissed the case.
