On April 16, 1997, the New York office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a lawsuit under Title VII against Brand Name Sales, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of New York. Since we have only the docket for this case, we have no further information on the allegations made against the defendants.

After a series of settlement conferences, the parties entered into a consent decree on March 5, 1999. On the same day, the district court approved the decree and closed the case.
