The New York District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Carrols Corporation, which operates more than 300 Burger King restaurants, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York in November 1998. The complaint is unavailable, but a court opinion indicates that the EEOC alleged a pattern or practice of sexual harassment and retaliation in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The defendant filed three motions for summary judgment. One was granted, one was denied, and one was not resolved as of April 22, 2008, at which time the case was still ongoing in the district court.
