In June 2006, the Memphis District Office of the EEOC filed suit in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee against Athletes Building Better Communities, dba Athletes Foot. The complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act by subjecting female employees to sexual harassment, and retaliated against them when they complained.

In July of 2007, the defendant notified the court that it had filed for bankruptcy. Upon the EEOC's motion, the case was dismissed without prejudice in October 2007; the EEOC reserved the right to re-file the case if bankruptcy proceedings turned up any property with which a judgment might be paid.
