In March 1999, the New York office of the EEOC brought this suit in United States District Court for the Southern District of New York against Le Bar Bat, Inc., Die Fliedermaus L.L.C., and the individual owner of both companies. The complaint alleged a pattern or practice of racial and sexual harassment in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

The alleged victims of the harassment intervened in the suit as plaintiffs. The suit was resolved with a consent judgment in May of 2002. This decree required the defendant to: maintain, post, and distribute a policy on sexual harassment and discrimination, provide training to employees, and refrain from discrimination or retaliation.
