Carlton v. Mystic Transportation et al. - 1/28/2000

Case Summary: The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit reinstated the age discrimination claim of our client, Charles Carlton. Mr. Carlton worked as director of marketing at Mystic, the New York City-based oil and fuel transportation company, for almost seven years. Mystic fired Mr. Carlton at age 57, and replaced him with much younger employees. Mr. Carlton sued Mystic for age discrimination under the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, as amended and similar state and city laws. The federal appeals court believed that Mr. Carlton had alleged sufficient facts for a jury to conclude that he was fired because of his age, and thus reversed the lower court's dismissal of his claims. The United States Supreme Court denied Mystic's request that it hear the case on appeal. Mr. Carlton and Mystic settled his claims shortly before the trial was scheduled to begin.
