The Seattle Field Office of the EEOC brought this suit against The Burrito Shoppe LLC and Allied Foodservice, Inc. (both doing business as Squeezers Giant Burgers) in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Idaho in August 2005. The complaint alleged sex discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The complainant was alleged to have been sexually harassed and constructively discharged because she was female. The Idaho Human Rights Commission intervened in the suit on behalf of the complainant. The employer made motions for judgment on the pleadings, to dismiss for failure to state a claim, and for summary judgment. The court denied all of these motions. In March 2008, a jury trial was set for July 2008. The case was ongoing in the district court as of 4/22/2008.
