KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has dismissed an age discrimination lawsuit filed against the University of Kansas.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/VK070l ) that U.S. District Court Judge Kathryn Vratil dismissed the lawsuit Thursday.
Cynthia M. Cook had been seeking more than $100,000 in damages in the lawsuit filed in 2011. The lawsuit said Cook, who was born in 1957 and hired in 1980 as a secretary, was laid off in 2009.
Cook contended that she was passed over for other positions that were filled by younger, less-qualified people.
