In September 2006, the Phoenix District Office of the EEOC filed suit in U.S. District Court, District of Colorado, against Crowley County Correctional Facility, a Colorado prison, and related corporate entities. The complaint was brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, alleging that the defendant allowed female employees to be sexually harassed by their co-workers, and that when some of them complained, the employer retaliated by subjecting them to increased scrutiny, by exposing them to the risk of physical harm at the hands of inmates, and by assigning them to work in isolated areas with their alleged harassers.

The charging parties intervened as plaintiffs in the case. In March of 2008, one of the defendant companies moved for summary judgment on the entire case, and all of the defendants moved for partial summary judgment. As of April 22, 2008, the motions were still pending, and the case still ongoing.
