In January 2001, the Houston Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Nite Moves in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas alleging discrimination on the basis of sex, female, in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. Following some discovery, the parties settled the lawsuit through an agreed final judgment in October 2001.

The three-year judgment, containing anti-discrimination and retaliation clauses, required the defendant to: report on complaints, allow the EEOC access for monitoring, develop an anti-discrimination policy, post notice of employee rights, provide EEO training, and pay $2,000 to be distributed to one individual.
