On April 17, 1996, the United States Department of Justice ("DOJ")filed an employment discrimination lawsuit in the Western District of Pennsylvania against the California University of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. On October 24, 1996, the District Court (Judge Robert J. Cindrich) approved the settlement agreement. The court retained jurisdiction for a period of three years and all claims brought by the DOJ were dismissed.

On February 6, 1997, the court granted an individual claimant's motion to intervene. On February 21, 1997, the plaintiff-intervenor filed a complaint. On August 8, 1997, the court denied the defendant's motion to dismiss. On December 13, 1999, the court entered a consent order pursuant to a stipulation of dismissal with prejudice. It appears that the plaintiff-intervenor and the defendant reached a settlement agreement.

The only document available for this case is the docket.
