Summary Judgment Win in Age Discrimination Case Affirmed on Appeal
On March 2, 2010, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Missouri’s order granting summary judgment in favor of Dowd Bennett’s national retailer client. The plaintiff, a former employee, claimed age discrimination and sought unspecified damages. Jennifer Aspinall and Erika Anderson handled the litigation and briefing on appeal. This victory represents another success in a long line of favorable dispositions Dowd Bennett has achieved for its retailer client through dispositive motions practice.
