A federal judge ordered the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to hand over $4.5 million in attorney fees to CRST Van Expedited, which was sued in 2007 by the federal agency, according to reports by the Des Moines Register.


The lawsuit claimed that CRST Van Expedited was allowing male drivers to sexually harass female drivers in truck sleeper berths, when they were paired together for training purposes.

In October, a U.S. District Judge Linda Reade rejected the EEOC's claims that CRST Van Expedited had tolerated sexual harassment by its employees. Reade found that the EEOC owed CRST for its troubles because the agency didn't perform a proper investigation into the matter.
