U.S. Supreme Court agrees with Judge Williams in ADEA case

In General Dynamics Land Systems, Inc. v. Cline, the majority of the Supreme Court agreed with the dissenting opinion in this case by Judge Glen Williams of the W.D. Va., sitting by designation on the Sixth Circuit, when he concluded in that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA") provides no claim for discrimination against the young in favor of the old.

I guess that makes it a red-letter day for Judge Williams, a two-fer, since the majority of the Court also bought into his position on the Privacy Act in the Doe v. Chao case.

In an earlier post, I linked to this commentary by James J. Kilpatrick, who likened the views of Judge Williams in the Cline case to Alice in Wonderland.
