The EEOC's Miami district office sued Dias Landscapes, Corporation on March 30, 2006 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the defendant violated Title VII by discriminating against Black, Haitian employees. Specifically, the EEOC alleged that the defendants had segregated its workforce and later discharged three individual claimants.

The parties entered into a consent decree on December 15, 2006, stipulating that the defendant would pay the complainants $150,000 in damages, post a notice of compliance with Title VII, provide Title VII training to its employees, draft and distribute a non-discrimination policy, report complaints of discrimination semiannually, and allow the EEOC to enter the defendant's premises to ensure compliance with the consent decree. The case was closed on January 5, 2007, but the Court retained jurisdiction to enforce the terms of the consent decree, set to last for three years. Since there is not further activity on the docket, this case is presumably closed.
