More Developments In Class-Action Lawsuit

by Jessica Cervantez

The lawsuit involves 700 Lufkin Industries employees.

Lufkin Industries has lost the latest round in that suit. The employees have been awarded more than $3-million in back pay plus interest.

The suit accuses Lufkin Industries of racial discrimination claiming blacks and Hispanics were not given the same opportunities for promotion and other training.

Lufkin Industries plans to continue appealing that ruling.
