Plaintiff contends she was issued a "final" written warning and subsequently discharged from her job as Portfolio Administrator at the age of 57, in retaliation for filing with human resources an age discrimination complaint against her team leader and because of her age. Additionally, Plaintiff claims that she was discriminated against in the terms and conditions of her employment because of her age due to her team leader's preferential treatment of Plaintiff's 23 year old peer in granting her training, bonuses, and vacation requests, all in violation of the Age Discrimination in

Finally, Plaintiff claims that she was discriminated against in the terms and conditions of her employment because of her sex due to her team leader's preferential treatment of his one, lone male portfolio administrator who was not required to perform as much work as Plaintiff or other female peers, nor disciplined or discharged for his performance problems in violation of Title VII. Defendants deny all claims raised against them and contend that their actions were legitimate. The issues are raised in the Complaint and the Answer thereto. No counterclaims, crossclaims, etc. are in the case.
