'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A Pleasant Hills man claims Allegheny County's Office of Children, Youth and Families passed him over for promotion because he's a man, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday.

Michael S. Smith, 42, applied for a supervisor position in the Northern Regional Office that was supposed to be based on eligibility and seniority but, despite his eligibility, the position went to a woman with less seniority, the lawsuit says. His supervisor and the office manager told him they passed him over because there aren't enough women in the office, he states in the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court, Downtown.

Smith's attorney, Sam Cordes, and county Solicitor Andrew Szefi couldn't be reached for comment.
