In January 1999 the San Antonio office of the EEOC brought this suit against Prime Tech, L.L.C. in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas. The complaint is unavailable, but court documents show that the EEOC alleged national origin discrimination and retaliation. The case was resolved by the entry of a consent decree in March 1999. The one-year decree awarded three complainants $29,553.95. Additionally, the defendant was required to provide training for its employees on national origin discrimination.
