Case Summary

In September 2004, the Detroit District Office brought this suit against Paradigm Sintered Products, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Michigan alleging that the defendant discriminated and retaliated on the basis of national origin in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the defendant discriminated against two of the charging parties by harassing them and subjecting them to different terms and conditions of employment because of their national origin, Indian. In addition, the defendant fired these two charging parties in retaliation for their complaints of the discrimination and terminated a third charging party in retaliation for his opposition to the discrimination. Starting in July 2005, the EEOC filed several motions for default judgment. The Court granted these motions in late August 2005, entering a default judgment in favor of the EEOC against the defendant.
