CHICAGO — The Illinois Department of Human Rights says there’s evidence of discrimination at an Exxon Mobil Corp. facility in the state following a gay rights group’s hiring complaint.

Freedom to Work’s 2013 complaint says the Texas oil giant was sent two similar resumes for a job in Patoka. However, one applicant indicated she was a gay-rights activist and had higher grades. The complaint says Exxon only made efforts to contact the other applicant.

The group’s attorneys are pursuing an Illinois Human Rights Commission hearing.

New Braunfels Utilities has agreed to a $20.5 million payment from LCRA to settle a lawsuit it won earlier this year against the energy provider.

The settlement comes several months after a jury found the Lower Colorado River Authority had breached its contract with NBU.

The jury in July found that LCRA, the wholesale power provider for NBU and others, had been giving more favorable rates to its customers who had agreed to long-term extensions of their contracts through 2041.
