Ex-Google Manager Can Sue Company For Age Bias

A 54-year-old former Google manager who claims he was fired after a supervisor told him his opinions were "too old to matter" has had his age discrimination lawsuit against the company reinstated.

The Sixth District Court of Appeal ruled yesterday that a jury deserves to hear evidence amassed by Brian Reid, showing Google routinely gave older managers lower evaluations and smaller bonuses than their younger colleagues.

The Mountain View-based search engine company has denied the allegations made by Reid, but refused to say why he was fired.

In court documents, Google says Reid was terminated when a program he was put in charge of a few months before he was fired was canceled.
