Employment Discrimination – Age – Stray Comments

A Charlottesville U.S. District Court says a 55-year-old engineer and corporate officer, who was replaced by a 45-year-old vice president of operations and who claims he was fired because of age discrimination, has failed to state a claim under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act with his general allegations about the company’s emphases on “new talent,” forward- and future-thinking employees, and the need for the engineer to consider replacement planning for his department employees, including himself.
