The Philadelphia district office of the EEOC brought this suit against Honda of America Mfg Inc, a major automobile company, in March 2006, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The EEOC's complaint alleged that the complainant had been retaliated against when Honda terminated her employment after she had opposed its discriminatory employment practices against women and minorities, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. In July 2006 the complainant intervened, adding causes of action under 42 U.S.C. ß 1981 as well as various state law claims and additional discrimination claims under Title VII. The case is still ongoing in the district court as of April 22, 2008. There has been a contentious discovery process, which is still continuing. Additionally, a motion for summary judgment filed by the defendant in January 2008 is still pending resolution.
