The lawsuit covers all current and former Dell call center employees in Oregon, Texas, Idaho, Tennessee and Oklahoma from February 8, 2004, to the present, a class that could include as many as 5,000 people. In November 2009, the case was settled out of court. Terms of the agreement were not made public.
