Successful Defense of Client in Age Discrimination Suit and Appeal
We represented a nonprofit organization that provides residential, treatment and community-based services to vulnerable children in Kentucky Jefferson Circuit Court and the Commonwealth of Kentucky Court of Appeal in a lawsuit brought by a former employee alleging age discrimination, failure to accommodate and retaliation. We filed a motion for summary judgment in Jefferson Circuit Court seeking complete dismissal of the plaintiff’s lawsuit. Jefferson Circuit Court agreed with the arguments asserted in our motion for summary judgment and dismissed the lawsuit entirely.
After the plaintiff appealed the circuit court’s decision, the Commonwealth of Kentucky Court of Appeals affirmed the Jefferson Circuit Court’s decision to grant summary judgment in favor of our client. This case was particularly significant as it provided clarity for what constitutes a disability under Kentucky law. The case is set to be published in the near future.
