Case Summary

In March 1998, the San Francisco District Office of the EEOC (with participation from the Oakland Local Office) brought this suit against Bekins Moving and Storage Company, Inc., aka Computer Movers Inc., in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. The only document publicly available regarding this case is the docket; therefore the exact allegations involved are unknown (The docket sheet does indicate that it is probably Title VII.). After some scheduling orders, the parties took part in early neutral evaluation. They then settled through a consent decree in early November 1999.
