HOUSTON — A black Harris County man is suing the restaurant chain Fuddruckers, alleging discrimination and wrongful termination.

Lloyd Mitchell filed a complaint June 30 in the Houston Division of the Southern District of Texas against Luby’s Fuddruckers Restaurants, alleging violation of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

According to the complaint, a result of Fuddruckers'  unlawful conduct, Mitchell, who began working for the defendant in 2008, has suffered humiliation, mental anxiety, stress and other pecuniary and non-pecuniary damages after being terminated March 1, 2016 without cause. 

The plaintiff alleges Luby’s Fuddruckers deprived him of equal employment opportunities, discriminated against him and terminated his employment because of his race and for his opposing discrimination.

Mitchell seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, attorney fees, interest, costs of court and all other relief. He is represented by attorney Katrina Patrick of Law Offices of Katrina Patrick in Houston.
