In September 2005, the Phoenix District Office of the EEOC filed this lawsuit against airplane manufacturer The Boeing Company in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona alleging discrimination on the basis of sex, female, and retaliation in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, the complaint alleged the defendant transferred a complaining party due to her opposition to sex discrimination and terminated the employment of two complaining parties. Following discovery, the District Court found no merit to the EEOC accusations, granting summary judgment in favor of the defendant in August 2007 and taxing $5,380.31 in costs against the EEOC. The EEOC appealed this decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in October 2007, Case Number 07-16903. The Court of Appeals did not rule on the lawsuit prior to collection of the case on April 22, 2008; therefore, the final outcome of this lawsuit is unknown.
