Two former law firm secretaries are suing their ex-employer for age discrimination.
Anne Hollingsworth, who is 66 years old, and Shawnda Foster, who is 49, filed separate lawsuits against their former employer, Paul Hastings. Both women worked in the law firm’s Los Angeles office until August, when the firm laid them off. They claim Paul Hastings terminated them because they were older and more expensive than the firm’s younger secretaries. Both women are seeking more than $1 million in damages.
