Race Discrimination

A laborer for a pipe company in Conroe, Texas, contends co-workers subjected him to racial epithets and choked him with a hangman’s noose. The laborer won a $1 million settlement from his former employer. The settlement, which stems from a lawsuit filed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in 2003, is the largest single award the agency has won for an individual in its history.
