Case Summary

On September 29, 2006, the Detroit field office of the EEOC brought this suit against Rocket Enterprise, Inc. in the Eastern District of Michigan. The EEOC alleged that the defendant violated Title VII by allowing a co-worker of the complainant to sexually harass her and that the defendant retaliated against the complainant by terminating her after she complained about the harassment. EEOC sought permanent injunctive relief, monetary relief, and punitive damages. The case was assigned to Sean F…

On September 29, 2006, the Detroit field office of the EEOC brought this suit against Rocket Enterprise, Inc. in the Eastern District of Michigan. The EEOC alleged that the defendant violated Title VII by allowing a co-worker of the complainant to sexually harass her and that the defendant retaliated against the complainant by terminating her after she complained about the harassment. EEOC sought permanent injunctive relief, monetary relief, and punitive damages. The case was assigned to Sean F. Cox.

On July 18, 2007, the court referred the parties to mediation, which was unsuccessful.

On August 13, 2007, the defendant moved for summary judgement, arguing that there was insufficient evidence to sustain the plaintiff's claims. The defendant's motion was denied on November 19, 2007 because there was no genuine issue of material fact (Judge Sean F. Cox.).

On January 18, 2008, the parties agreed to dismiss the plaintiff's claims of sexual harassment and hostile work environment, leaving the retaliation claim alone. It is unclear from the docket why the parties came to this agreement.

The case moved to a trial on the retaliation claim, which led to a jury verdict for the defendant on February 7, 2008.

The EEOC moved for a new trial in February of 2008, alleging an erroneous verdict. EEOC's motion was denied on March 18, 2008. The EEOC then appealed in May 2008. It later voluntarily dismissed the appeal on February 3, 2009.

The case is closed.
