The Philadelphia district office of the EEOC brought this suit against Pitt-Ohio Express, Inc., a transport company, in March 2006, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.

In August 2006, the complainant, a female, was granted leave to intervene on behalf of herself and the class of females who had been refused employment due to their sex. This case is still ongoing in the district court with the most recent event being a status conference held on January 17, 2008, in which was discussed the progress being made toward settlement.
