Satterlee Stephens Obtained Dismissal of Age Discrimination Claims Against J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A.


Satterlee Stephens obtained dismissal of age discrimination claims brought against J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A. after successfully urging the Court to strike the plaintiff’s untimely-filed amended complaint and to dismiss the suit prior to discovery.  The Court agreed that the plaintiff’s federal claims failed to state a claim for which relief could be granted, because the plaintiff’s complaint stated “at best a mixed motive for [plaintiff’s] termination” and the plaintiff’s argument for equitable tolling of the timeliness requirements in the Age Discrimination in Employment Act lacked merit.  J.P. Morgan Chase Bank N.A. was represented in this matter by Satterlee partners Thomas Cahill and Jennifer Philbrick McArdle.
