HOUSTON — A British citizen is suing Shell U.S. Hosting Co., Shell Oil Products U.S., Shell Exploration and Production Co., citing an alleged breach of employment contract.
Sri Raghunatha Venkateswara Babu Bnagaru filed a complaint on Feb. 27, in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against the defendants, alleging that they violated the Long Term International Agreement.
