The EEOC brought this suit against Video Only, Inc in September 2006 in the United States District Court for the District of Oregon (Portland). The EEOC alleged harassment and retaliation based on race, national origin and religion in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The intervenor-plaintiffs alleged discrimination and retaliation based on race, national origin and religion in violation of Title VII, and violations of 42 USC ß1981 and 15 USC ß1681n. After several status conferences, denial of intervenor-plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment, denial of intervenor-plaintiffs' motion to consolidate, and postponement of trial four times, the case is still in litigation as of 04/21/2008, with the EEOC's motion to consolidate pending.
