Court: United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan (Genessee County)

Description: Kalamazoo, Michigan civil rights lawyer represented Plaintiff, Lori Ann Drews, who sued County of Berrien on a age based job discrimination theory.
Lori Drews had a lengthy career at the Berrien County Road Commission. Most recently, she worked as its payroll specialist.

Drews was terminated, and she sued Berrien County for age discrimination. The district court granted summary judgment in favor of the County.
