The New York District Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, against Mid-State Management Corporation and Felgren Payroll Corporation. The complaint, filed in September 1999, alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; specifically that Defendant had failed to hire women for permanent positions and had laid off women from their temporary jobs because of their sex.

The EEOC filed for partial summary judgment in August 2000 and November 2000, and the defendant filed for summary judgment in September 2000, but the motions were never ruled on. In June 2001 the parties settled by entry of a consent decree, but we do not have access to that document.
