Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP and Outten & Golden LLP Files Federal Class Action Lawsuit against Sandia National Laboratories Alleging Gender Discrimination

Kelly Dermody of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP and David Lopez of Outten & Golden LLP announced the filing of a federal class action lawsuit in New Mexico alleging that Sandia National Laboratories has engaged in systemic and pervasive discrimination against its female employees. The lawsuit, Kennicott v. Sandia National Laboratories, filed by three current and former employees, accuses Sandia of engaging in a pattern and practice of gender discrimination against its female employees. In addition to its work devoted to the United States’ nuclear weapons systems, Sandia performs national security research in such fields as computer science, engineering, biology, and mathematics. In 2015, Sandia employed approximately 11,700 individuals, with nearly all employees working at its Albuquerque, New Mexico and San Francisco Bay Area laboratories. Sandia’s operating budget was $2.8 billion in 2015, and it is the third-largest employer in Albuquerque. The plaintiffs allege violations of federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New Mexico Human Rights Act. The plaintiff class is represented by Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP and Outten & Golden LLP. The plaintiffs allege that as a result of Sandia’s policies, patterns, and practices, female employees receive less compensation and are promoted less frequently than their male counterparts. Attorneys Kelly Dermody, Lin Chan, Anne Shaver, and Michael Levin-Gesundheit of Lieff Cabraser Heimann and Bernstein, LLP and David Lopez, Adam Klein, and Elizabeth Stork of Outten & Golden LLP represent the plaintiffs. David Lopez served as general counsel of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission from 2010 to 2016.

Lifeloc Technologies and Sandia Corporation Announce License Agreement

Lifeloc Technologies, Inc. and Sandia Corporation announced the signing of a licensing agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Lifeloc will acquire the exclusive rights to develop, manufacture and market Sandia’s patented SpinDx™ technology for the detection of drugs of abuse. SpinDx uses a centrifugal disk with microfluidic flow paths allowing multiple tests to be carried out on a single small sample. This technology, sometimes referred to as Lab on a Disk, should result in devices and tests that could be used at roadside, emergency rooms and in workplace testing to get a rapid, quantitative measure for a panel of drugs of abuse. This technology began with Sandia’s basic research into developing devices for the rapid identification of trace levels of biotoxins to combat terrorism. It has been advanced to drugs of abuse through years of work under a cooperative research and development agreement between Lifeloc and Sandia. Feasibility of detection has already been demonstrated for very low levels of delta-9-THC (the primary psychoactive agent of marijuana), cocaine, and methamphetamine.
