On September 5, 2003, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"), on behalf of a female employee, filed a lawsuit in the Eastern District Court of Wisconsin, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended by Title I of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, against Mount Carmel, LLC. The EEOC sought injunctive relief, compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorneys' fees, and other forms of affirmative relief claiming that the defendant discharged the plaintiff-intervenor in retaliation for her opposition to sexual harassment and her participation in an investigation of sexual harassment claims.

On February 12, 2004, the plaintiff-intervenor filed a complaint against the defendant. On October 7, 2004, the District Court (Magistrate Judge Aaron E. Goodstein) entered a consent decree where the defendant, among other things, agreed to pay the plaintiff-intervenor $257,500 for past and future lost payroll income, other forms of alleged damages, including emotional distress and reputation damages, and attorneys' fees.
