The San Francisco District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Dean Ryan and Tops Industries, in September 1997, in the U.S. District court for the Eastern District of California. The only document available from PACER is the docket, so the information on the case's facts and procedure are rather thin. After the trial date was set there was an 8 month lull in activity before a settlement conference was set. On January 4, 1999 a settlement was reached and the case was finally dismissed on January 11, 1999.
