In March 2006, the Phoenix District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Lumpy, LLC, doing business as Chilly Bombers Bar & Grill, in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona alleging discrimination on the basis of gender, female and pregnancy in violation of the Equal Pay Act of 1963 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Following discovery and the partial granting of a motion for summary in the defendant's favor, the lawsuit was heard by a jury in March 2008. Following the undisclosed jury verdict, the plaintiff was instructed to lodge a proposed form of judgment, which it did in April 2008. As of the case collection of April 22, 2008, the parties were still contesting the judgment proposal as recently as April 11, 2008.
