On September 15, 2003 The Recorder reported that "a federal jury returned a defense verdict Thursday in a wrongful-termination suit filed by a Lebanese-American executive who said his bosses pressured him to quit in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The seven-woman, one-man jury returned its verdict in less than two hours, deciding that former Advanced Micro Devices Inc. Vice President Walid Maghribi wasn't forced to quit after his bosses questioned him about being an Arab and Muslim at a company dinner party. "
