The EEOC's Houston district office sued Amoco Chemical Company, Inc. and BP Amoco Corporation on May 10, 1999 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The EEOC alleged that the defendant violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act when it discriminated based on age. The EEOC filed a motion for partial summary judgment in April 2000 and refiled it in July 2000, which was denied as moot in September 2000. Amoco filed a motion for summary judgment in July 2000 which was never resolved. The parties entered into a consent decree on October 30, 2000, which stipulated that the defendant would pay $100,000 in damages; provide ADEA training to its human resources personnel, interviewers, and applicants to the Texas City plant; and report compliance with the training requirement to the EEOC.
