In September 1998, the Charlotte District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Toyota City, Incorporated, doing business as Scott Clark's Toyota City, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. However, it appears from the consent decree that the complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the four charging parties on the basis of sex, female, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. A complainant intervened in the lawsuit in February 1999. Following some discovery, the parties settled in October 1999 through a consent decree.

The three-year decree required the defendant to: post its anti-retaliation policy, provide anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation training to all its employees, report to the EEOC on a semi-annual basis, and pay $60,000 to be distributed among four claimants and cover attorney's fees and costs.
