On May 1, 2007, Clive Hilgert, an employee of the George S. May International Company, filed a lawsuit under 42 U.S.C. § 2000e, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act against his employer in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The plaintiff, who proceded pro se, asked the court for damages, claiming that he, and others similarly situated, were denied commissions.

The District Court Court (Judge Ricardo Hinojosa) ordered mediation on December 19, 2008. However, the parties were unable to resolve this case.

On October 7, 2009, the District consolidated this case (07-094) with another case (09-154) filed by the Plaintiff in 2009.

On October 9, 2009, the Court orally granted Defendant's motion for summary judgment as to the Title VII retaliation claim. The Court also granted Defendant's motion for summary judgment as to Plaintiff's hostile work environment claim. The Court allowed discovery on Plaintiff's age discrimination to be completed by November 23, 2009.

The parties filed a joint pretrial order on August 31, 2010. The case is ongoing.
