In January 1998, the San Francisco District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against Nalbandian Sales Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. However, it appears from the consent decree that the complaint alleged that the defendant refused to hire or rehire three individuals due to their association with a person filing an employment discrimination charge against the defendant. Following a settlement conference and defendant's unsuccessful motion to dismiss in March 1998, the parties settled the lawsuit in February 1999 through a consent decree.

The decree, containing a non-discrimination and non-retaliation clause, required the defendant to pay $30,000 to be distributed among three individuals.
