In July 2005 the Dallas District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against the airplane fueling companies of Allied Aviation Services Inc., Allied Aviation Fueling Company of Dallas LP, and Allied Aviation Fueling Company of Texas Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas alleging discrimination on the basis of race, African-American, and national-origin, Mexican, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaints alleged that the defendants created a hostile work environment and retaliated against at least one of the eighteen African-American, White, or Mexican-American complainants due to complaints about themselves and for cooperating or participating in an a Title VII proceeding. The complainants intervened in the lawsuit in May 2006. Following some discovery and a partial motion for summary judgment by the EEOC that was not decided, the parties settled the lawsuit through a consent decree during mediation in March 2008.

The three-year decree, containing an agreement not to discriminate or retaliate, required the defendants to: report to the EEOC about complaints and make other compliance reports, expunge the employees' files, post notice of employee rights, provide EEO training, discipline managers engaging or permitting discrimination, and pay $1,885,000 to be distributed to an unknown number of the eighteen complainants and their attorneys.

The only activity that appears on the docket after entry of the decree is a consented motion to dismiss the non-participating intervenors from the case, which was entered in April 2008. Presumably the case was closed in 2011.
