This case was filed by the Chicago office of the EEOC in June 2001 in U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois. The EEOC alleged that the defendant, International Profit Associates, violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act by carrying out a pattern or practice of discrimination by subjecting female employees to sexual harassment, and by making favorable employment actions contingent upon the performance of sexual favors.

Two of the employees allegedly harassed filed related suits (see cases #1:02−cv−02790 and #1:02−cv−04281), and two employees intervened in the EEOC's suit. The discovery stage of this litigation has been protracted, with several dozen discovery motions being filed over the course of a five-year period. In December of 2007, the defendant moved for summary judgment as to some of the claimants. As of April 22, 2008 that motion is still pending, and the case still ongoing.
