The Birmingham District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Charoen Pokphand USA Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama in November 1999. The complaint is not available, but court documents indicate that the complaint alleged sexual harassment and retaliation in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The case was consolidated with a private plaintiff case, Dinkins v. Charoen Pokphand USA, 2:99-cv-00847-ID-JLC (M.D. Ala. Aug. 10, 1999), in May 2000. That case ended with a settlement agreement in April 2001.
