Karlo v. Pittsburgh Glass Works LLC, 15-3435

In an employment discrimination suit under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, arising out of the termination of plaintiffs who were all over the age of fifty, the district court's grant of summary judgment in favor of employer defendants is reversed where a disparate-impact claim is cognizable when a 'subgroup' of employees at the upper end of that range -- in this case, employees aged fifty and older -- were alleged to have been disfavored relative to younger employees.
