Case Summary

On September 30, 2004, the EEOC's Baltimore Office filed suit against Worthington, Moore, & Jacobs, a collection agency operating out of Ellicott City, Maryland. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. § 2000e), alleged that the company president sexually harassed a number of female employees, and that the company retaliated against those who complained.

On September 30, 2004, the EEOC's Baltimore Office filed suit against Worthington, Moore, & Jacobs, a collection agency operating out of Ellicott City, Maryland. The complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland and brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (42 U.S.C. § 2000e), alleged that the company president sexually harassed a number of female employees, and that the company retaliated against those who complained.

On February 19, 2009, the court (Judge Everett Legg), due to the defendant's abandonment of the pretrial process and the withdrawal of its counsel, entered a default against the defendant. On April 29, 2009, the court found that the defendant violated section 703(a) of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. §2000 by discriminating against employees on the basis of gender by subjecting them to sexual harassment. The court also found that the defendant violated section 704(a) of Title VII by retaliating against employees for their complaints about sexual harassment by subjecting them to retaliatory harassment and by terminating their employment or effectuating a constructive discharge by deliberately creating intolerable working conditions.

On August 5, 2009, the court ordered that the defendant pay 1) claimant 1 back pay of $75,256.00 and compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000.00, 2) claimant 2 back pay of $21,966.00 and compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000, 3) claimant 3 compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000.00, 4) claimant 4 back pay of $17,734.00 and compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000.00, 5) claimant 5 back pay of $75,042.00 and compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000.00, 6) claimant 6 back pay of $114,737.00 and compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000, 7) claimant 7 back pay of $23,591.00 and compensatory and punitive damages of $50,000.00.

Several writs of garnishment were served over the next two years in order to collect the damages awards. There has been no docket activity since 2011, so the case is likely now closed.
