  6. William Radue v. Kimberly-Clark Corporation (2000)

    When Kimberly-Clark informed William Radue that he would be laid off from his mechanical engineer position as part of a reduction in force, it also mentioned that he could seek other positions with the company. Radue never secured another job, so he sued under the ADEA, maintaining that younger employees were given positions for which he was qualified. Because Radue failed to show discrimination under the direct method, and was unable to establish a prima facie case of age [...]

  9. Fed. Sec. L. Rep. P 95 v. Ernst & Young (1990)

    Continental Illinois Bank's financial distress during the 1980s left many victims, from taxpayers (who injected some $2 billion to keep the bank afloat) to equity investors (who lost most of the value of their stock) to some of its officers (now spending time in prison) to bonding companies and insurers (which must compensate the firm for injuries caused by employees' delicts). Litigation was bound to erupt. Cases that have reached us include FDIC v. Hartford Insurance Co., 877 F.2d 590 [...]

A jury convicted Durrive on both counts and the district court sentenced the defendant under the Sentencing Guidelines ("Guidelines"). The first issue on appeal is whether the [...]

  14. Joseph F. Cada v. Baxter Healthcare Corporation (1991)

    The plaintiff, Joseph Cada, complains that the defendant, Baxter Healthcare, fired him in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, 29 U.S.C. Secs. 621 et seq. The district court granted summary judgment for the defendant on the ground that the suit was time-barred, and dismissed the suit. The appeal presents fascinating and important questions regarding statutes of limitations generally and the age discrimination statute of limitations in particular.

  17. Emil J. Bartholet v. Reishauer A.G. (Zurich) (1992)

    Emil Bartholet's case summons up a doctrine only a judge could love. Usually the plaintiff is master of his pleadings. The complaint stakes out a claim, and the allegations of the complaint determine whether the claim arises under state or federal law. See Christianson v. Colt Industries Operating Corp., 486 U.S. 800, 108 S.Ct. 2166, 100 L.Ed.2d 811 (1988). If the complaint invokes state law, and the defendant believes that federal law supplies a defense, the court in which the [...]

  20. Alfred L. Stone v. City of Indianapolis Public Utilities Division (2002)

    The plaintiff in this employment discrimination suit appeals from the grant of summary judgment for the defendants. As explained in an unpublished order issued today, none of the plaintiff's claims has any merit, and summary judgment was therefore properly granted. We limit this published opinion to a question on which clarification is needed. It is the proper standard for summary judgment when a plaintiff claims that he was retaliated against for complaining about employment [...]
