Age Discrimination Suit Dismissed in Favor of Our Client

Employment Law

Employer reorganized its management team due to business losses. Two of the employees sued, claiming they were demoted because of age. On summary judgment, the employer asserted the business reorganization was a legitimate business reason for the demotions and there was no evidence of age discrimination. The court found in favor of employer and dismissed the lawsuits, awarding costs to the employer. One employee appealed, and the grant of summary judgment was upheld on appeal.
