In June 2005 the Los Angeles District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Rock-N-Roll LLC and the owner, Michael Barbee, both doing business as the restaurant Quiznos, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California alleging discrimination on the basis of gender, female, in violation of Title VII 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 court entered a default judgment against the defendants in June 2007. The judgment placed an injunction against the defendants from discriminating or retaliating against employees and required the defendants to pay $200,000 to the EEOC office for distribution at its own discretion.
