The EEOC's Chicago district office sued Servico Rolling Meadows, Inc., on May 7, 2002 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII when it discriminated based on sex (female) and national origin (Mexican) by creating a hostile work environment for the intervenor, who intervened in July 2002, and firing her in retaliation for her complaint. The assigned judge, Ruben Castillo, immediately designated the case for an expedited settlement conference, and after a series of settlement and status conferences, the parties entered into a consent decree on June 12, 2003. In this consent decree, the parties stipulated that the defendant would pay the complainant $90,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, provide Title VII training to its managers, record complaints of harassment, and report these complaints semiannually to the EEOC.
