UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION
May 18, 2011
EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
MONTEREY GOURMET FOODS, INC.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lucy H. Koh United States District Judge
United States District Court For the Northern District of California
ORDER RE: PROPOSED CONSENT DECREE (re: dkt. #57)
On May 9, 2011, the parties submitted for the Court's approval a proposed Consent Decree.
See Dkt. #57. The terms of the Consent Decree include monetary and injunctive relief, mandatory 18 training, reports to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and a two-year term of 19 duration. In addition, the parties request that the Court retain jurisdiction to enforce compliance 20 with the Consent Decree over the two-year duration. The parties represent that the case will be 21 dismissed with prejudice after that two-year term, provided that there is compliance with the terms 22 of the Consent Decree. 23
The Court is amenable to the terms of the Consent Decree, with one exception. The Court's preference is for the parties to file a stipulation of dismissal without prejudice subject to the Court's 25 retention of jurisdiction to enforce the provisions of the Consent Decree for a period of two years.
At the end of the two-year period, provided there is compliance with the terms of the Consent 27 Decree, the parties may then seek dismissal with prejudice.
Accordingly, on or before Wednesday, May 25, 2011, the parties shall re-file the proposed Consent Decree with the above modification.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
