The Indianapolis district office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) brought this lawsuit against Unitrin Specialty (a business segment of Unitrin, Inc.) and Trinity Universal Insurance Co. (a wholly owned subsidiary of Unitrin, Inc.) in September 2006 in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio. The complaint alleged that an employee had been fired in retaliation for complaining about sex and age discrimination in the workplace, in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).

In 2006 and 2007, the parties began discovery and started to engage in court-ordered mediation.

On September 22, 2008, Judge Walter Herbert Rice granted the defendants’ motion for summary judgment, finding that the plaintiff’s conduct was not actually protected under Title VII 42 U.S.C. § 2000e or the ADEA. Therefore, retaliation in violation of the ADEA or Title VII had not occurred. The defendants then moved for attorney fees on October 3, 2008, but the court denied this request on August 31, 2009.

The case is now closed.
