Mullins v. Charleston Stamping & Manufacturing, Inc., 2011 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 65846 (S.D. W.Va. 2011)

Lead counsel in representation of a stamped parts manufacturer sued for age discrimination by an unsuccessful applicant for employment at its plant located in South Charleston, West Virginia. The plaintiff alleged that Charleston Stamping intentionally discriminated against him because of his age in failing to hire him, and that its hiring policies and procedures had a disparate impact on applicants over age 40. Charleston Stamping moved for summary judgment as a matter of law, asserting alternatively that the plaintiff’s claims were barred by the applicable statute of limitations, and that he could not make out a prima facie case of age discrimination. The court granted summary judgment on all claims.
