On March 9, 1994 United States of America filed a complaint under Title VII, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e. et seq. (Title VII) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against McHenry County, the McHenry County Sheriff's Department, and a number of county officials. The United States sought injunctive relief, alleging that the defendant had violated Title VII by discriminating on the basis of sex.

The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against women by: (1) maintaining policies and practices that generally discriminate against women; (2) depriving women of certain employment opportunities and limiting the employment opportunities available to women; (3) subjecting female employees to a hostile work environment; and (4) failing or refusing to investigate and take remedial action when complaints of harassment or discrimination were brought to their attention. More specifically, the defendant refused to select women for the position of Shift Leader and Assistant Shift Leader, and failed to recruit and hire women as patrol officers. Additionally, the hostile work environment and sexual harassment involved subjecting female employees to sexually explicit and vulgar language, subjecting female employees to unwelcome physical conduct of a sexual nature, and forcing female employees to view sexually explicit drawings and other graphic and vulgar written material.

On August 17, 1994, the District Court (Judge Reinhard) denied the motion dismiss made by all defendants, but granted the "Jail Administrator's" motion to dismiss, because the "Jail Administrator" does not exist for purposes of suing or being sued. United States v. McHenry County, 1994 WL 447419 (N.D. Ill. 1994).

On April 15, 1996, the court granted the motion to intervene made by the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 119 and the Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council.

On September 10, 1996, the court granted the parties' joint motion for final entry of the consent decree. The intervenor appealed the entry of the consent decree. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit dismissed the appeal. On November 13, 2001, the consent decree was terminated and the case was dismissed.
