According to court documents an East Texas company has been found guilty of discrimination.   After a 12 year class action lawsuit, the United States District Court found Lufkin Industries guilty of discrimination. According to the documents the court affirmed the judgement of Lufkin's liability to the class for the discriminatory impact of its subjective promotional policies but not on the claim that the company discriminatorily assigned newly hired African Americans to the foundry position. A spokesperson from Lufkin industries said they could not confirm the information. We hope to bring you more details of this story tomorrow.
