This case was brought in September 2005 in U.S. District Court of Utah by a former employee of Stevens-Henager College who alleged that she was paid a lower salary because of her gender, in violation of the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The complaint also alleged that the woman was fired in retaliation for complaining about the disparate treatment.

The case was consolidated with another suit that was brought in the District of Utah against Stevens-Henager by the EEOC. See Equal Employment Opportunity Commission v. Stevens-Henager College, 1:05-cv-00122 (D. Utah Sept. 28, 2005). After the defendant's motion for summary judgment was denied, the case proceeded to trial in March 2007. After a four-day trial, the jury found for the defendant on all claims. The plaintiffs appealed the decision, but they withdrew the appeal in July 2007. This ended the case.
