In August 1999 the New York, NY office of the EEOC brought this suit against Golden Lender Financial Group in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The complaint is unavailable, but court documents show that the EEOC alleged sex, race, color, and national origin discrimination, and a claim of retaliation. The complaint was on behalf of three female employees. The defendant filed a motion to dismiss in October 1999, which was granted on the race and national origin claims but denied on other grounds. Counsel for the defendant withdrew, and the defendant subsequently failed to make appearances. The EEOC brought a motion for default judgment, which was granted in January 2001. The three complainants were awarded a total of $59,310.86 in backpay and compensatory damages.
