In March 2001, the EEOC district office in Atlanta, Georgia brought this suit against Wren Chevrolet, Inc., a regional automobile dealership, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia. The complaint states that two female employees were regularly subjected to sexual harassment and retaliated against when they complained, all in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The case was quickly disposed of, with a consent decree being entered in June 2001.

In the consent decree, the parties agreed that the defendant would pay the aggrieved women $75,000 each, refrain from retaliating or discriminating in the basis of sex, post EEO notices, provide EEO training, make semiannual reports to the EEOC, have the alleged harassers read the consent decree, issue neutral reference letters, implement an anti-discrimination policy, and appoint a compliance official. No fees or costs were awarded. The terms of the agreement ran for two years.
