Attorneys for Nokia of America Corp. filed a motion Wednesday to dismiss the suit of a former in-house attorney, arguing her age and sex discrimination claims are untimely and her retaliation claims are unsupported.
Sharan Rene Boudreau filed suit in July against Nokia in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas claiming age and sex discrimination. She claims she was passed over for a promotion by a man who is younger and less experienced. She further claims she was fired for filing a complaint against Nokia with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and with the Civil Rights Division of the Texas Workforce Commission claiming sex and age discrimination. Boudreau is seeking damages for back pay, mental anguish and other compensatory damages.
