Both suits were filed in September 2007 under Title  VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In the first lawsuit (Case No. CV 07-06169 SJO), the EEOC charged that non- Chinese banquet servers were rejected for hire based on their national origin  when the San Gabriel Hilton severed its contract and hired Landwin  Management to operate the establishment in April 2005.
