A janitorial airline contractor at Los Angeles International Airport and more than a dozen of its employees have settled a case alleging their supervisor improperly prohibited them from speaking Spanish during work hours and breaks.

Attorneys for lead plaintiff Irma Espinoza and the other Gate Gourmet workers filed a notice of dismissal of the lawsuit last week in Los Angeles Superior Court and a notice of settlement in March. No terms were divulged.

In May 2015, the janitors sued Gate Gourmet — which provides cabin cleaning and restocking services to Delta Air Lines at LAX — accusing the company of failing to prevent the discriminatory policy.

The suit alleged unlawful workplace language policy, harassment, failure to prevent discrimination and national origin discrimination.
