United States v. City of Lubbock, Texas

Consent Decree and Other Documents

In settlement of this lawsuit, the United States and the City of Lubbock voluntarily agreed to the Consent Decree, available at the link below. At the Fairness Hearing on the Terms of the Consent Decree held on November 14, 2016, the Court found the Consent Decree to be fair, lawful, and reasonable. On the same day, the Court entered the Consent Decree as final and binding.

The Court approved the Final Individual Relief Awards Lists on September 22, 2017. The Final Back Pay Awards List identifies each claimant whom the Court determined is eligible for back pay and the amount of back pay to be awarded. The Final Priority Hire Claimant List identifies each claimant whom the Court determined is eligible to pursue priority hiring relief.

In order to receive the individual relief for which the Court determined the claimant to be eligible, the claimant must fully execute the Acceptance of Individual Relief and Release of Claims form and the required tax withholding forms, and return them by mail or email to GCG by November 1, 2017. Failure to return fully executed forms by this date may result in the claimant forfeiting relief.
