Case Summary

On February 9, 2007, the parents of a female minor student filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma against the Eufala Independent School District No. 1, McIntosh County Oklahoma. The plaintiff, represented by private counsel asked the court for declaratory and injunctive relief, claiming that the school violated Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972, 20 U.S.C. § 1681 and the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Consitution and 42 U.S.C. §1983 by depriving their daughter of her equal treatment and benefits to participate in athletics based on her gender. The plaintiff played softball and golf; she complained that her teams had facilities (fields, locker rooms, practice times, playing times) that were much inferior to those for the boys' teams.

On March 26, 2008, the Court (Steven P. Shreder, J.) dismissed the case for reason of settlement whose terms were not disclosed.
