In September 2001, the EEOC district office in Phoenix, Arizona brought this action against Bank One Arizona in the U.S. District court for the District of Arizona. Although the complaint is not available, the EEOC litigation report states that a female alleged that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Aged Discrimination Act in Employment (ADEA). After the assignment of a magistrate judge and two settlement conferences, the case was settled and a consent decree was entered in May 2002.

In the consent decree, the parties agreed that the defendant would pay the aggrieved party $80,000, refrain from discriminating or retaliating on the basis of race or age, expunge the complainant's employee record of any mention of this litigation or charge of discrimination, issue neutral references, and issue a written apology to the complainant. No fees or costs were awarded. The terms of the agreement ran for two years.
