On April 26, 2004, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"), on behalf of a black female applicant, filed a lawsuit in the District Court of Maryland, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title I of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, against Advancemed Corporation.

The EEOC sought injunctive relief, compensatory damages, punitive damages, and other forms of affirmative relief, claiming that the defendant refused to hire the complainant because of her race. On March 23, 2005, the District Court (Judge Peter A. Messitte) entered a consent decree where the defendant, among other things, agreed to pay the complainant $22,000.
