The Houston district office of the EEOC brought this suit against Lyondell-Citgo Refining, LP (LCR), in August 2006 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The complaint alleged that LCR had refused to hire a male complainant due to his record of disability and because they regarded him as disabled. LCR filed a motion for summary judgment in January 2008 and the EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgment later that month. In April 2008, the EEOC's motion was denied and summary judgment was granted to LCR, ending the suit.
