On July 8, 1997, the United States Department of Justice filed an employment discrimination lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the City of Fullerton, and the Fullerton Police and Fire Departments. The parties jointly moved for the entry of a settlement agreement on September 10, 1997. The District Court (Judge J.

The court approved these final individual relief determinations on September 14, 1999.
