Conditions were such that James was constructively terminated and resigned after 21 years of service to TDCJ. His retirement resulted in a range of mental and emotional stress, as well as damage to his pension and retirement benefits.
On October 9, 2002, represented by the Law Office of Jo Miller of Conroe, Texas, James filed a complaint seeking damages in excess of $3.6 million. However, on May 12, 2004, TDCJ paid James and his attorney a total of $50,000 to dismiss the suit. Of the $50,000, $19,618 was apportioned for attorney's fees.
