The Miami District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against IPC International Corporation, a firm that provides security for malls around the country, in September of 1999, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The suit alleged national origin discrimination and retaliation for four complainants, three of whom intervened. The case went to mediation and was settled. A consent decree ensued and was signed on January 24, 2001.

The consent decree contained both monetary and injunctive relief. The complainants each received $20,000 and their lawyers were given $20,000 in costs. The injunctive relief consisted of neutral letters of reference for the complainants, posting of notice, training for their managers about national origin discrimination and retaliation, and reports on complaints from the defendant's employees.
