On September 20, 2003, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC"), on behalf of a female stone mason (plaintiff-intervenor), filed a lawsuit in the Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania, under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title I of the Civil Rights Act of 1991, against Dan Lepore & Sons Co. and L.F. Driscoll Co. The EEOC sought injunctive relief, compensatory damages, punitive damages, attorneys' fees, and other forms of affirmative relief, claiming that the defendant subjected the plaintiff-intervenor to a sexually hostile work environment and retaliated against her after she complained about sexual harassment.

On February 9, 2004, the plaintiff-intervenor filed a complaint. On February 25, 2005, the District Court (Judge Legrome D. Davis) entered a consent decree where the defendant, among other things, agreed to pay the plaintiff-intervenor $75,000, reinstate her in one of the projects she was working on, and guarantee her at least one year's work as a stone mason.
