Case Summary

On September 29, 2010, a class of male employees 50 years of age or older filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA"), 29 U.S.C. § 621, against Pittsburgh Glass Works, LLC. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, asked the court for lost compensation in front pay and back pay, attorneys' fees and costs, declaratory and injunctive relief, lost pension benefits, and liquidated damages, claimin…

On September 29, 2010, a class of male employees 50 years of age or older filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA"), 29 U.S.C. § 621, against Pittsburgh Glass Works, LLC. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel, asked the court for lost compensation in front pay and back pay, attorneys' fees and costs, declaratory and injunctive relief, lost pension benefits, and liquidated damages, claiming that they were abruptly terminated without explanation. Specifically, the plaintiffs claimed that their employment was terminated because of their age in violation of the ADEA.

On November 29, 2010, the defendant moved to dismiss Count III of the complaint for failure to state a claim because plaintiffs were not employees of defendant at the time of the alleged retaliation.

On December 22, 2010, the plaintiffs moved to dismissed the defendant's counterclaim for breach of contract, alleging that the ADEA waiver in its releases was invalid and unenforceable.

On May 9, 2012, the Court (Judge Nora Barry Fischer) granted plaintiffs' motion for conditional certification because all members of the proposed class were over age 50 when they were terminated, all of their terminations were in the course of a single, company-wide reduction in force, and the plaintiffs relied on common evidence to prove their alleged discrimination.

On July 20, 2012, the Court denied the defendant's motion for interlocutory appeal because the Court's decision regarding certification was merely conditional and therefore not a final ruling.

In February and August 2013, five plaintiffs dismissed their claims with prejudice.

In 2016, after trial, the court ruled in favor of plaintiffs for $922,060.

The Court reviewed with the parties their 26(f) reports in detail and particularly the description of documents and individuals encompassed by fact discovery. Although in many areas the parties have agreements, many areas may require the Courts intervention. The Court also reminded parties of their duty to disclose both hard copy and electronic documents. Initial disclosures must be made by 3/3/11 by 5:00 p.m. Because of disagreements concerning the course of discovery, the Court orders that counsel provide the Court with proposed orders by 3/18/11 at 5:00 p.m. For good cause shown, the Court enlarges the limitations of discovery on both depositions and interrogatories. Counsel will supplement their Rule 26(f) reports by 4/4/11 by 5:00 p.m. Counsel will also submit a proposed protective order by said date. The Court will conduct periodic discovery status conferences, the first of which will occur on 4/5/11 at 10:00 a.m. EST, the Court to initiate the call. Following the case management conference, counsel for the parties continued their discussion concerning the case. Court orders to follow. (Court Reporter: None) (jg) (Entered: 02/08/2011)

ORDER indicating that upon consideration of the parties; arguments, and for reasons stated on the record during the 3/23/11 hearing, it is hereby ordered that: 1. Defendant shall file its Amended Answer with Affirmative Defenses and Counterclaims by 4/14/11 at 5:00 p.m.; 2. Plaintiffs' Motion to Dismiss Defendant's Counterclaim 24 is denied, as moot, and without prejudice to Plaintiffs raising the issues set forth therein in a Motion for Summary Judgment at the conclusion of fact discovery upon Order of Court; 3. To the extent Plaintiff Benjamin D. Thompson, however, wishes to renew his motion to dismiss after the filing of Defendant's Amended Answer, said motion shall be filed by 4/28/11 at 5:00 p.m. Defendant's response to same, if any, shall be filed by 5/12/11 at 5:00 p.m.; 4. Plaintiffs' Motion to Strike 26 is denied, as moot. Moreover, based on the status of this case, including ongoing disclosures and argument of counsel pertinent to the facts underlying the affirmative defenses raised by Defendant, and the present state of the law in this District, the Court finds that Defendant's Affirmative Defenses, as stated in its "Answer, Affirmative Defenses and Counterclaim" 8, provide Plaintiffs with sufficient notice to prepare for and participate in discovery as well as to counter same; 5. Defendant's Motion to Dismiss 59 is denied without prejudice to Defendant raising the issues set forth therein in a Motion for Summary Judgment at the conclusion of fact discovery upon Order of Court.
