In August 2006, the Charlotte District Office of the EEOC brought suit against S.G.T. Cinelli's, Inc., dba Cinelli's Restaurant, and its related corporate entity Cinelli's Ristorante, Inc. The suit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina, and alleged that the company violated Title VII by subjecting female employees to a sexually hostile work environment.

The case was briefly stayed for settlement talks, which were unsuccessful. In January of 2008, the EEOC moved for default judgment as to Cinelli's Ristorante. The motion was still pending, and the case still ongoing, as of April 22, 2008.
