State Department violated ADEA

D.C. Circuit says department broke discrimination law when it forced 65-year-old employee to retire

The D.C. Circuit found yesterday that the U.S. State Department illegally discriminated against one of its employees abroad.

John R. Miller Jr. worked at the U.S. embassy in Paris until the State Department forced him to retire in July 2007 because he had turned 65 years old. He sued the department, claiming his forced retirement violated the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA).
