In March 1998, the Dallas office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against Lord & Taylor in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the complaining party based on her race (black) and constructively discharged and retaliated against her. The defendant moved for partial summary judgment, which was not resolved because the parties came to a settlement. The court entered an agreed order in July 1999.

The one year agreed order included an anti-discrimination provision, an anti-retaliation provision, training for executives on Title VII requirements, removal of anything relating to the charging party's complaint from her personal records, a report on the compliance with the order to the EEOC, and a payment of $32,500 to the charging party for compensatory damages.
