EEOC Appeals Ordered Payment To CRST

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is again appealing an order that it pay millions in legal costs to an Iowa trucking company for a botched investigation.

EEOC filed notice Friday that it will appeal last month's order by U.S. District Judge Linda Reade that it pay $4.7 million to CRST Van Expedited.

Reade's order is believed to be the largest-ever fee sanction in the history of the EEOC. She says the agency brought numerous "unreasonable or groundless" claims of sexual harassment against the Cedar Rapids-based company.

Reade had ordered the agency to pay $4.5 million in 2010 to CRST, but that award was thrown out by the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The appeals court will now consider the issue a second time.
