And it looks like UPS has one here in Texas. UPS wins discrimination case And it wasn't like the EEOC wasn't trying to hit a home run according to the story: "The EEOC had filed the suit and asked the jury to award the employees $248,000 in back pay and up to $300 million in punitive damages." A San Angelo jury took less than an hour to toss the case according to the story in the San Angelo Times.
