The EEOC Denver office filed this suit on September 14, 2000 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, Denver Division. The suit alleged violation of the ADA by defendant Cedar Supply Company doing business as Rocky Mountain Forest Products, Inc. After filing, the EEOC amended its complaint to a claim of sexual harassment, a violation of Title VII.

The defendant moved to dismiss, and the court granted the motion in April 2001, on the grounds that it was too late for the EEOC to depart so far from its initial pleadings.
