The Los Angeles district office of the EEOC brought this suit against Laughlin Associates, Inc. in September 1998 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada. The complainant sought to intervene in March 1999 but her motion was denied two months later. After some discovery and disputes over a proposed proactive order, a stipulated settlement was entered in September of 1999. After complainant's motion to intervene was denied, she gave notice of appeal in June of 1999, and her appeal was dismissed in December of 1999 as not complying with the Ninth Circuit's rules.
