$410,000.00 Settlement Reached In Age Discrimination Case

The firm's employment lawyers, James Sabatini and Vincent Sabatini recently obtained a $410,000.00 settlement in an age discrimination case.  The client was an air traffic controller that was denied employment by the U.S Air Force on the basis of his age.  The damages were largely confined to loss pension benefits.  Due to the complicated nature of the loss of federal pension benefits, economist Arthur Wright was brought into the case as an expert witness.  Dr. Wright's expertise confirmed the damages suffered by our client and calculated those damages in present day value along with the necessary compensation to our client for the "extra" taxes incurred on receiving the lump sum settlement.  In certain employment cases, the issue of damages can be complicated. Consequently, the damages issue needs to be worked on with as much diligence as the work performed on the issue of liability. This will ensure that the damages claim is made as ironclad as possible to allow for the best possible result in the case.
