A federal jury in St. Louis has ruled in favor of the St. Louis Rams in a lawsuit filed by a woman who clamed she was forced out because of her age
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A federal jury in St. Louis has found in favor of the St. Louis Rams in a lawsuit filed by a woman who claimed she was forced out because of her age.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Lory Fabian was 56 when she sued the Rams in 2012, claiming she was one of a number of older employees who lost their jobs to younger workers.
Rams attorney Bradley Winters argued Friday that Fabian simply was not rehired when her contract ended in 2011. He said performance issues and the way she dealt with co-workers led to that decision.
Fabian's lawyer said older employees were replaced with interns, and that Fabian had performed her job well.
A judge tossed out a sexual harassment claim before the trial, which ended Friday.
