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.
