An Albuquerque automobile dealership is agreeing to pay $2 million to settle a lawsuit alleging that dozens of male employees were subjected to same-sex sexual harassment and retaliation.

A consent decree filed Thursday in federal court settles a 2011 suit filed by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Pitre (PEE'-tree) Inc., which does business as Pitre Buick.

The suit alleged that managers subjected employees to sexual harassment that included solicitations for sex and grabbing. It also alleged that Pitre retaliated against workers who objected.

In its lawsuit, the EEOC charged a former lot manager, James Gallegos, under the direction of Charles Ratliff, Jr., then general manager, with subjecting a class of men to egregious forms of sexual harassment, including shocking sexual comments, frequent solicitations for oral sex, and regular touching, grabbing, and biting of male workers on their buttocks and genitals. The EEOC also alleged that Pitre retaliated against male employees who objected to the sexually hostile work environment. During the pendency of the lawsuit, the retaliatory actions of Pitre raised such concern that a U.S. District Court judge granted a preliminary injunction against Pitre, prohibiting the dealership and all of its agents from threatening or engaging in retaliatory actions against case participants [Docket No. 46].

I wonder if this is one of the dealerships that the zero administration through it government motors bailout allowed to remain open, if so I can understand, same kind of people as now residing in White House.

Interesting. Except for the parts manager, all the employees are male. In todays world that is highly unusual from the car lots I’ve visited. Every car lot I have visited has at least a few females, if only in customer service.

Any culture that cannot or will not prevent the vile molestation of young boys by decadent older men will not last long.

In some of today's courts, perhaps not. In real terms - of course it is.

Are all car salesmen (employees) pansies? What about an ass-kicking?

An ass-kicking would be charged as a hate crime because the kickee is a protected class member.

So, if I went in there to buy a car, got all the way to signing the bottom line, and then told them, “No, you’re homosexual, I won’t buy from you,” could they sue me?

It’s a lot worse. In civilian life you don’t have to bunk with your co-workers like in the military. The pole smokers and carpet munchers are bolder now but they still get their asses handed to them if they pick on the wrong soldier/sailor/airman/marine.

Oh yes I know. I had one grab my butt. She told me I was hot. She never did it again. Multiple other stories of drunken she males trying to climb into my rack in the middle of the night. It wasn’t called the dyke division for nothing.
