The El Paso and San Antonio offices of the EEOC brought this suit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas in September 2004 against JLP, LLC and Wolflin Oil, LLC. The complaint alleged discrimination based on race and national origin in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. More specifically, the complaint alleged the defendants terminated the employment of two employees because of their race (black) and national origin (Hispanic). While the Court administratively closed any claims against Wolflin Oil in December 2004, this order was subsequently vacated. In January 2006, the parties entered a consent decree.

The consent decree included non-retaliation and non-discrimination clauses and required the defendants to post the EEO rights of employees. The defendants agreed to provide EEO training to supervisory and managerial employees on non-discriminatory work and management techniques. The decree had a term of two years, but called for an extension upon a violation. The defendants also agreed to pay the two claimants a total of $10,000. The defendants were also required to provide neutral reference letters to claimant's prospective employers and expunge their employment records.
