Lufkin Cert Petition Denied

On 11/14/11, 2011, the Supreme Court denied a petition for certiorari that was filed by the defendant in McClain v. Lufkin Industries, Inc., a 14 year old race discrimination class action case that Goldstein Demchak has been litigating with Nagocdoches, Texas attorney Timothy B. Garrigan in federal court in Lufkin, Texas. The denial of Lufkin’s petition means that the approximately $5.5 million in back pay and pre-judgment interest awarded by the district court after trial and affirmed on appeal now may be distributed to the class.
