The EEOC's Houston office filed this suit on February 21, 2002 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. The case was settled by consent decree on November 4, 2002. The consent decree claimed that the EEOC alleged defendant McCall-T Ltd, doing business as Sterling McCall Toyota, violated Title VII by discharging two employees in retaliation for their opposition to defendant's alleged discriminatory practices directed at Nigerian salesman. Group 1 Automotive Inc Employee Disability Plan was joined as a third-party defendant.

The parties agreed to trial by magistrate before settlement. In the consent decree, the defendant agreed to pay the two discharged employees $135,000, $44,550 of which constituted back pay. The defendant also agreed to provide training for its managers and report to the EEOC regarding its compliance with the decree.
