CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A federal magistrate has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Casper-based True Oil LLC and associated companies that had alleged the companies discriminated against women employees by paying them less than men for equivalent work.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Kelly Rankin of Cheyenne this week granted a request from the True companies to dismiss the federal agency’s complaint.

Rankin ruled the federal agency had failed to show that female employees were performing the same work as males who were paid more money.

Bill Salvin is spokesman for the True companies. He said Wednesday that company officials are grateful for the ruling. He says equal treatment of employees always has been a fundamental principal of the businesses.
