(CBS) – The U.S. women’s national soccer team has been fighting for months to receive the same rate of pay as their male counterparts.

On Friday, a judge dismissed the claim for equal pay but said that other allegations of discrimination can proceed to trial.

U.S. District Judge R Gary Klausner said he would not allow the equal pay allegations to go forward because the women’s national team previously “rejected an offer to be paid under the same pay-to-play structure” as the men’s national team.

According to CBS Sports, the women’s team sought $66 million under the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
