Case Summary

The Charlotte District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Blue Dolphin Restaurant Corp., doing business as Poseidon Steak and Seafood Restaurant and Apollo Lounge, in September 1999, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina. The only document available from PACER is the Court Docket and thus the facts of the case are extremely limited. A month after the case was filed, there was an unopposed motion by the EEOC for the entry of a consent decree. Ten days later, on April 20, 1999, a consent decree was entered.
