Case Summary

In September 2006, the San Francisco District Office of the EEOC (with participation from the Seattle Field Office) brought this suit against Horseshoe Lake Golf Course, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington alleging discrimination on the basis of sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the defendant subjected the eight charging parties, female employees, to a sexually hostile work environment consisting of unwelcome sexual contact and comments. The parties settled the case almost immediately in October 2006 through a consent decree. The defendant agreed to pay a total of $367,000 and to implement EEO policies, complaint procedures, and training programs. The terms of the agreement were to run for 5 years. The docket sheet does not show any further enforcement took place; the case was presumably closed in 2011.
