Case Summary

On December 17, 1990, the United States Department of Justice (D.O.J.), on behalf of approximately 100 individuals, filed a lawsuit under Title VII, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e. et seq. (Title VII) in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Louisiana against the Parish of New Orleans Criminal Sheriff.

On December 17, 1990, the United States Department of Justice (D.O.J.), on behalf of approximately 100 individuals, filed a lawsuit under Title VII, 42 U.S.C. § 2000e. et seq. (Title VII) in the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Louisiana against the Parish of New Orleans Criminal Sheriff. The D.O.J. asked the court for injunctive relief, alleging that the defendant had violated Title VII through "pattern and practice" of discrimination against women in hiring and in conditions of employment.

The complaint alleges that the Parish of Orleans Criminal Sheriff discriminated on the basis of sex in hiring and promotion practices.

The individual employees sought to intervene as plaintiffs. On October 11, 1996, the parties filed a Joint Motion for Conditional Entry of Consent Decree. That decree provided for awards of individual relief to three hundred forty-three persons. Seventy-five claimants not recommended for relief filed objections to the United States' determination that they are not entitled to individual relief. The District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana (Magistrate Judge Alma Chasez) overruled each of the objections and entered the proposed consent decree as the final judgment, United States v. Parish of New Orleans Criminal Sheriff, 1997 WL 35215 (E.D.La. 1997).

On January 28, 1997, the consent decree was entered, with the general provisions that: (1) all persons hired under the terms of the ordered decree must meet all lawful job requirements; (2) The Sheriff's office shall ensure that all deputy sheriff's positions and assignments are open to women as stipulated as remedial relief; (3) persons who are entitled to an offer of an award of remedial relief shall include and woman who timely filed a claim for relief with the United States; and (4) the sheriff's office is to establish a fund of $2,000,000 from which monetary relief will be paid. Monetary relief was paid by the Parish of Orleans Criminal Sheriff's office to individual plaintiffs through January 13, 2004.

On October 8, 2003, the District Court dismissed the case pursuant to the consent decree, because all of the individual relief required by the consent decree had been paid.
