In September 1998, the Albuquerque District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against American Seafood Partners, Ltd. and Restaurant Management Company of Wichita, Inc. (doing business as Long John Silvers Inc.) in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico alleging discrimination and retaliation on the basis of sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the defendant subjected the complainants, female employees, to a sexually hostile work environment, leading to constructive discharge in one circumstance and retaliation in another. Following some discovery, the parties settled the lawsuit in July 1999 through a consent decree. We do not have a copy of the consent decree; therefore, the exact relief involved is unknown.
