Successfully Defended a Client During an Age Discrimination Case (2017)

We successfully represented a company and its president through an age discrimination-in-hiring case. The plaintiff was part of a predecessor’s management team and younger than the candidate the company ultimately selected. Plaintiff had also executed a severance agreement with the predecessor employer concerning the sale to the defendants. The company took the position the case was appropriate for Rule 11 sanctions. On the eve of trial the plaintiff asked to settle by dismissing case if defendants would not sue the plaintiff’s lawyers under Rule 11.
