In March 2002, the San Antonio office of the EEOC brought this Title VII suit against Gillman Mitsubishi in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The complaint alleged that the defendant discriminated against the charging party by firing him after he complained to the defendant's general manager about negative remarks made about his religion by his direct supervisor. The charging party intervened in the suit in September 2002. The parties reached a settlement, and the court dismissed the case in March 2003. The settlement paid the charging party $75,000 in compensatory relief, including attorney's fees. No other information about the settlement agreement was made available.
