In August 2002, the EEOC district office in New York City brought this action against Fashion Accessories Bazaar in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The docket states that a female complainant intervened. Although the complaint is unavailable, the docket indicates that the complainant alleged that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by discriminating against her because she was pregnant.

A consent decree was entered in June 2003. Although the consent decree is unavailable, the docket indicates that the parties agreed that the defendant would pay the complainant $50,000, and refrain from retaliating and discriminating based on pregnancy. No fees or costs were awarded.
