The Indianapolis district office of the EEOC brought this suit against Unitrin Specialty (a business segment of Unitrin, Inc.) and Trinity Universal Insurance Co. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Unitrin, Inc.) in September 2006 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The complaint alleged that an employee had been fired in retaliation for complaining about sex and age discrimination in the workplace, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The case is still ongoing in the district court as of April 22, 2008, and the most recent substantial event was the conclusion of a voluntary mediation process on April 11, 2008. A motion for summary judgment filed in November 2007 by the defendant is still pending.
