Successful Defense of Client in Age Discrimination and Retaliation Lawsuit
We represented a national health insurance provider in the Franklin County Court of Common Pleas in a case regarding age discrimination and retaliation. The plaintiff alleged he was discriminated against and retaliated against when he was terminated for performance issues. The plaintiff claimed there was an animus against older workers, and that his supervisor was intent on generating a younger workforce. After taking the plaintiff’s deposition and defending the deposition of his direct supervisor, we filed a motion for summary judgment on all claims. Summary judgment was granted as to all claims, and the court adopted much of the brief and reasoning presented by our client.
