In September 2000 the Miami, FL office of the EEOC brought this suit against Kronberg Bagel Company d/b/a Bakin' Bagels in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida. In its complaint, the EEOC alleged that the defendant subjected three female employees to sexual harassment and constructive discharge in violation of Title VII. In November 2000, two of the charging parties intervened in the suit.

The parties were involved in numerous discovery disputes and each filed a partial motion for summary judgment. The case remained open, however, and a jury trial was set for March 2002. The parties eventually resolved the case in March 2002 before going to trial by the entry of a consent decree. The defendant was required to pay $45,000.00 to resolve the litigation. It was also required to provide sexual harassment training to its management. Defendant Bakin' Bagels ceased its business operations on November 2001; therefore, the decree's provisions on training will be applicable if and when it reopens.
