Businessman Jim Crane has stayed exit of the sf*>t-light since the announc e-ment that his investment group had reac hed a deal tt) buy the Houston Astros for $(>80 million.
As he awaits wort I tin approva I from Major I e a g u e Baseball,
Crane says an almost decade-old dist rimina-tion settlement involving his < om-pam shouldn't factor into the de< ision.
In Octc >c*r 2001, Crane s former t ompany, Eagle Global Logistic s, agreed to a $() million settlement of a lawsuit that alleged race, sex and age discrimination against employees and job applicants. It in< lud-ed $8 S million in bat k pay and damages and a $500,000 fund to train women and minorities tor leadership |obs at the company.
The Equal 1 mployment Opportunity ( ommission alleged at the time that EG1 had improperly tailed or refused to promote or even find jobs for lilac ks, I lispanic s and women. The1 EEOC also alleged that those three groups were paid less than whites and subjet I to disparate disc ipline and a hostile working env ire »nment
( rane left ECU , an intern.itionaI freight c <>m-panv, in 2007 and rounded ( rane \\ orldw ide 11»gistit s t e next year. At the* time of the settlement, he desc ribed it as a commitment to a work environment free of dis! rimi-nation.

lion of the* settlement was returned to EGL by District Judge Lynn Hughes after it was found that

Rac ial discrimination is a partic ularly sensitive suojet t for a league that < elebrates diversity in a number of i\ s. The league marks lackie Robinson Dav annually m memor\ of the' Brook-ly n star who broke baseball's t olor barrier in 1 ‘M7. and it bat ks youth programs to address the1 dwindlmg number of blacks in the majors.
The Houston < hapter of the NAACP expressed (oncern about ( rane, c it-ing the I (iL case
The president of the* c hapter, I ).Z. ( otield, has reportedly since met with
rane. Cofield, who is also paste >r of Good Hope Missionary Baptist ( hurt h in Houston, did not respond to requests tc >r c omment.
Crane has made several unsuc t essful attempts to bin a team. He attempted to buy the
■Wros m 2008, but
Me Lane turned him down. In 2001», he was in the running to buy the ( ubs and last summer teamed w ith 1 Xillas Mav eric ks (>w ner Mark ( uban in an unsuc t esstul bid to buy the lexis Rangers.
Houston's outgoing ow ner, 1 )rayton McLane, said he does not believe the ( ase will keep ( rane* from rc’c ciiv ing Ml B approval.
