EMPLOYMENT a company accused of age discrimination after laying off a 66-year-old employee was found not liable by an Ohio jury on July 18. Robert Mead, a design engineer, was the oldest employee of McKee-Addison Tube Forming Inc. of Wilmington, Ohio. In 1998, Mead was stripped of his supervisory authority and given new duties. The company claimed that this was due to costly errors on his part. However, Mead claimed that, on separate occasions, managers had asked him how long he planned to work at the company. In 2000, Mead was discharged, along with dozens of other employees. He claimed that younger and less-senior employees were retained. The company claimed that Mead did not know how to use a widely used design program and was one of the highest-paid employees. Mead v. McKee-Addison Tube Forming Inc., No. CVH 2001 0727 (Clinton Co., Ohio, Ct. C.P.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS: David D. Kammer and Paul H. Tobias, Tobias, Kraus & Torchia, Cincinnati DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: Thomas F. Hurka and Mark Karasik, Baker & McKenzie, Chicago
