The EEOC's Dallas office filed this suit on August 19, 2003 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas division. The complaint alleged that defendant TXI Operations, LP violated Title VII and the Equal Pay Act by paying a female employee less than a similarly situated male employee. The male employee was hired by TXI as in-house counsel at a higher salary than the complainant, and received raises and promotions which maintained his compensation at a rate higher than the complainants. The defendant claimed that the male employee received higher compensation due to greater experience.

The court set a trial date of January 17, 2005. The defendant moved for summary judgment, and the court granted the motion on January 13, 2005, on the grounds that the EEOC "fail[ed] to produce substantial evidence from which [the] Court [could] infer that the Defendant's proffered reasons for the pay disparity were actually pretext for sex discrimination."
