The San Francisco District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Lucent Technologies, Inc. in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in September 2004. The case was transferred to the Northern District of California in January 2005. Because the dockets are the only available documents, the allegations of discrimination are unknown. In February 2005 the case was stayed pending the Ninth Circuit's decision in AT&T Corp. v. Hulteen. The court ordered the case to remain stayed in October 2007. In December 2007, the parties were ordered to submit a joint status report every ninety days until the Supreme Court issues an order on the petition for certiorari in AT&T Corp. v. Hulteen. The case is still ongoing in the district court as of 4/22/2008.
