Age-bias case vs. Google can move forward, state Supreme Court rules – San Jose Mercury News
By Mike Swift
In a ruling that could have broad ramifications for workers who sue employers for age bias, the California Supreme Court has cleared the way for a former Google executive who was fired to move forward with a lawsuit accusing the company of age discrimination.
The justices on Thursday unanimously upheld a San Jose appeals court's earlier conclusion that Brian Reid, who was fired from his job as Google's engineering director in 2004, could take his case to trial because he'd presented enough evidence, including “stray comments” from co-workers and a supervisor mocking him for his age, to make a discrimination claim.
