Federal Judge Dismisses 35 Plaintiffs from Lawsuit Against Boeing and Spirit AeroSystems
Jun 3 14
A Kansas federal judge last week dismissed 35 plaintiffs from a lawsuit alleging that Boeing and Spirit AeroSystems terminated employees because of their age. Judge Eric Melgren said the plaintiffs failed to comply with orders to respond to repeated discovery requests for information and documents. The suit stems from Boeing’s sale of its commercial aircraft operations in Wichita, Tulsa and McAlester, Okla., to Onex Corp. in 2005. According to the initial lawsuit, Boeing fired more than 10,000 employees from the three sites before the sale, which included a disproportionate number of older workers. Spirit rehired more than 8,300 of those workers, but it was less likely to hire the older workers, the original lawsuit alleges, a move that violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. The former employees appealed the decision, but it was upheld by the Court of Appeals. Last year, the District Court allowed the plaintiffs to file a complaint asserting individual claims against the company.
