In March 2005, the Raleigh (along with the Charlotte) office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against United Rental Homes, LLC et al in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the claimants, and others similarly situated, by subjecting them to a sexually hostile environment (because they were women) and constructively discharging them. The court granted the EEOC's motion for default judgment in August 2006 and entered judgment in favor of the EEOC. The court required the defendant to pay the claimants $103,275 in compensatory damages, punitive damages, and back pay.
