In March 2000 the New York, NY office of the EEOC brought this suit against The American Food Company, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York. The complaint is unavailable, and the exact allegations brought by the EEOC are unknown. The defendant answered the complaint, and initial management conferences were held. The defendant filed for bankruptcy sometime in 2001, and discovery in the case was stayed. While the stay was lifted in 2004, the case stayed inactive for over a year, and the action was eventually administratively closed in February 2006. The action was withdrawn without prejudice by the EEOC in December 2006.
