That is SO last week

Last week, a jury awarded sports journalist, T.J. Simers a $7.1 million verdict in his age and disability discrimination suit against the Los Angeles Times.  Mr. Simers alleged that he was subjected to discrimination following a “mini-stroke” at age 63. Two months after the stroke, Mr. Simers received his first negative performance review, and claims that less than six months later he was forced out of his job. In a statement to a local news network, Mr. Simers said, “I got sick and I got old, which is a terrible combination in this day of newspapers.” The Los Angeles Times plans to appeal the verdict.
