Ms. Papalia was employed by Milrose as its Executive Director of Operations. Without warning, she was demoted to Director of Administration, losing all but one of her more than 60 reports and suffering a reduction in her compensation. Rather than accept the demotion, which she believed was motivated by her age and gender, Ms. Papalia left Milrose, asserting that she had been constructively discharged. Milrose then hired a younger male to run Operations. Ms. Papalia filed claims of age and gender discrimination, as well as a claim for violation of the Jury Systems Improvement Act. At the conclusion of discovery, Milrose moved for summary judgment, but the court ruled on December 29, 2011 that Ms. Papalia’s age and gender discrimination claims could proceed to trial.
