Age Discrimination Claim, Based on Failure to Promote, Successfully Defended

A Fortune 100 telecommunications company faced an age discrimination claim brought by a current employee and based on a failure to promote theory. Although the successful candidate was only 19 years old, had been with the company for a shorter period of time, and did not have the same college credentials as the plaintiff, CDF convinced the trial court to grant the company summary judgment of all of the plaintiff’s claims. We then convinced the plaintiff to forego appealing and sign a general release of all unknown claims in exchange for waiving the defendant’s right to recover its statutory costs.
