Schwan’s, the Marshall-based frozen food company, must turn over data requested by the EEOC in a long-running sex discrimination case. Judge Janie Myeron ruled in favor of the EEOC’s subpoena requesting demographic data on employees who have entered the company’s management trainee program.

The discovery is part of a case brought by Kim Milliren, who claimed she was harassed while participating in the program in 2007 and punished for complaining about it.

The EEOC is seeking information on the number of men and women who entered the program, how many completed it and how many quit.

Schwan’s attorneys complained the discovery requests were overly broad, but the judge disagreed. Schwan’s must produce the data to facilitate the EEOC’s investigation.

If the two sides cannot come to an agreement, the case could move to court following the EEOC’s investigation.
