CASE ENTRY

Kleber v. CareFusion Corporation

Quinquagenarian lawyer applies for senior in-house counsel gig, but he’s rejected in favor of 29-year-old applicant. Age discrimination? Can’t say, says the Seventh Circuit (sitting en banc). The relevant statute protects only current employees, not outside job applicants. Dueling dissents disagree, with one dubbing the majority’s approach “deliberately naïve” and blind to “fifty years of history, context, and application.”
