The El Paso Office of the EEOC brought this suit against Endeavor Energy Resources, d/b/a Rig Movers Express Incorporated, in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas in June 2005. The complainant brought a separate suit against Endeavor Energy Resources, d/b/a Rig Movers Express Incorporated, in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas in January 2005. Both complaints alleged race (black) discrimination in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the private party complaint also alleged state tort law claims. There was virtually no litigation activity in either case prior to consolidation in August 2005. The private plaintiff's case was designated the lead case. After consolidation and a couple discovery motions, the case was settled by a consent decree in March 2006.

The 2-year consent decree includes anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation clauses and requires the defendant to: post and distribute notice of its anti-discrimination policy, provide training for all managerial employees, give access to the EEOC to inspect compliance, give a neutral reference to the complainant, expunge the complainant's employment records, and pay the complainant $57,500 in damages.
