United States Supreme Court
CRST Van Expedited, Inc. v. EEOC, 14-1375
In an attorney's fees action brought by an employer-defendant in an underlying sexual harassment suit under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. section2000e-5(b), which the District Court dismissed because the EEOC failed to satisfy its presuit requirements, the Eight Circuit's reversal of the District Court's judgment and attorney's fee award to employer is reversed where favorable ruling on the merits is not a necessary predicate to find that a defendant is a prevailing party.
