Abstract The case, EEOC v. Scott Medical Health Center, P.C., was previously newsworthy as one of the first two sexual orientation discrimination lawsuits that the EEOC filed. It was also one of the first cases in which a federal court held that sexual orientation is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by the gender discrimination prohibitions of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII). Now that the EEOC has successfully litigated this type of case through to a damages award, its enforcement actions – and related private actions brought by plaintiffs – are likely to increase.
