In December 1997 the Memphis Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Odom Antennas Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations are unknown. However, it appears from the consent decree that the defendant allegedly subjected complainants, female employees, to sexual harassment and retaliated against them after they opposed such practice in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Following some discovery, the parties settled the lawsuit through a consent decree in December 1998. The consent decree required the defendant to pay $34,000 to three individuals.
