Dan Hartzog, Jr. Obtains Dismissal in Age Discrimination Suit
Dan Hartzog, Jr. obtained summary judgment in an age discrimination case brought by the former police chief against a Town. The chief was terminated at age 65. He alleged that he was terminated due to his age, and claimed that the Town Manager told him during his termination meeting that the Town Board wanted “younger blood” in the Chief’s office. He further alleged that the Mayor commented that the Town needed a “younger Chief” during his grievance hearing. Summary judgment was granted on the grounds that the ex-chief was unable to establish age discrimination.
