Santangelo v. New York Life Insurance Co., 14-1912

Plaintiff was a life insurance agent with defendant insurance company for more than forty years before his termination, and he now contends that he was an "employee" and that in firing him, defendant engaged in age discrimination in violation of both state and federal law. Summary judgment in favor of defendant on all claims is affirmed, where: 1) plaintiff's state law age discrimination claims were time-barred; 2) no reasonable jury could conclude that defendant engaged in age discrimination under federal law in terminating plaintiff's agent contract; and 3) no reasonable jury could conclude that the termination breached plaintiff's contract with defendant or violated any of his common law rights.
