The Philadelphia district office of the EEOC brought this suit against DHL Express (USA), Inc., a major national shipping company, in September 2006, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio. The complaint alleged that DHL had refused to hire a fifty-three year old applicant because of his age, in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. DHL filed a motion for summary judgment in September 2007, which was granted in November 2007. In January 2008, the EEOC gave notice of appeal. The appeal is still ongoing in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit as of April 22, 2008, and its appellate docket number is 08-03143.
