\ The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued the drive-in in 2002, saying it was discriminating against its Navajo employees by requiring them to speak English on the job.\


\ The interest group ProEnglish stepped in to help the drive-in with legal costs as it fought the suit, but they lost in court in a federal appeals court in September. Now the drive-in has rescinded the original policy and put a new policy in place that includes a revised English policy.\

\ The case is similar to another one ongoing in Massachusetts. The Senate passed a spending bill that would end that EEOC lawsuit, and that bill is being squared with the House.\

\ A conference to hammer out differences had been scheduled for earlier this week but has been put off.\
