EEOC v. Propak Logistics, Inc., 13-1687

The district court did not abuse its discretion in ordering that plaintiff Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) pay attorneys' fees to a prevailing defendant-employer after the court awarded summary judgment to defendant-employer in an action brought by the EEOC, where the district court properly concluded that the EEOC acted unreasonably in filing the employment discrimination complaint, because events that occurred during the EEOC's administrative investigation precluded the EEOC from obtaining either injunctive or monetary judicial relief.
