The Washington, D.C. and Birmingham offices of the EEOC brought this suit against Aladan Corporation and London Internal Group, manufacturers of plastics, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Alabama in September 1999. The complaint alleged discrimination of Title VII as well as 42 U.S.C. ß1981. More specifically, the complaint alleged the defendant discriminated against employees based on their sex, female, and race, African American, by maintaining a hostile work environment. Eight employees were allowed to intervene in the suit in March 2000 and subsequently, the case was consolidated with Streeter v. London Int'l Group, 2:99-cv-00674 (M.D. Ala. July 2, 1999).

The cases were consolidated when the consent decree was signed in June 2000. The consent decree requires that the defendant, London International Group, pay $625,000. In the consent decree, the defendant also agreed to establish and distribute a zero tolerance policy concerning sexual and racial harassment and retaliation, provide EEO training, provide neutral references, not disclose any documents relating to the intervening parties identified by EEOC, and pay the costs of notice publications in a particular newspaper in Alabama as well as mediation. In the event of non-compliance, the court retained authority to enforce the decree, during its 18 month term.
