Mar 7, 2016 in News by

A Sussex County judge has tossed an age-discrimination suit against a New Jersey resort, finding the plaintiff did not produce proof to discredit the reason for her termination. In his Jan. 28, 2016 decision, Superior Court Judge Edward V. Gannon said there was “nothing that would allow a rational factfinder to hold that Defendants terminated Plaintiff due to her age, or that Defendants’ decision to terminate Plaintiff was motivated in any way by discriminatory animus.”
