The Chicago District Office of the EEOC brought this action in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, against Primps L.L.C., d/b/a Supercuts, Inc. The complaint, filed in August 2005, alleged national origin discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; specifically that Defendant had discriminated against the charging parties based on their national origin, Hispanic, by maintaining a policy that required employees to only speak English. Two of the complainants intervened in November 2005.

The parties entered a consent decree in October 2006. The decree, valid for one year, required Defendant to pay the three charging parties a total of $5,000 (individual amounts not disclosed in the decree), and enjoined Defendant from retaliating in violation of Title VII.

The decree was entered in 2006 and scheduled to last until 2007. No further docket entries exist, so the case is closed.
