Item 5.  Other Events and Required FD Disclosure

On April 21, 2004, the Company was served with a complaint alleging certain
violations of the California labor code.  Among other charges, the class
action complaint alleges that from October 2000 to the present time certain
hourly employees did not take their lunch break within the time period
prescribed by state law.  Notwithstanding that the delayed break was at the
request of, and for the convenience of, the affected employees, the Company
believes that it could have a liability to pay a wage premium for these
delayed lunch breaks.  The Company intends to defend itself vigorously
against all allegations in the complaint and has established what management
believes to be an appropriate reserve in the quarter ended February 28, 2004.
