In April 2001, the San Antonio District Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Astoria Metal Corporation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. We do not have a copy of the complaint; therefore, the exact allegations involved are unknown. After several scheduling conferences in which the defendant did not appear, the EEOC filed numerous motions for default judgment. The court finally granted one of the EEOC's motions in June 2002, entering a default judgment in their favor. The judgment awarded $217,427 to the charging party and required the defendant to provide the charging party with a neutral employment reference.
