Court Says Failure to Rebut ‘Honest Belief' In Firing Reasons Dooms Age Bias Claims

The 6th Circuit recently held that a 57-year-old plaintiff for a technical college in Ohio failed to establish triable age bias claims under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and Ohio law because she did not adequately rebut the college's “honest belief” in its stated reasons for her discharge. Blizzard v. Marion Tech. Coll., (6th Cir., No. 11-3441, 10/19/12).
