Former Chiefs Employee Appeals To Missouri Supreme Court In Age Discrimination Case
The Missouri Supreme Court Wednesday heard arguments from representatives of the Kansas City Chiefs and one of their past employees. The case revolves around alleged age discrimination over the Chiefs’ firing of Steve Cox, a former maintenance manager at Arrowhead Stadium.
Lewis Galloway, Cox’s attorney, says the Missouri Court of Appeals won’t let him present the evidence he’d like for a fair trial. And that’s what the Missouri Supreme Court will decide.
“We’ve always been confident in the evidence,” said Galloway. “We thing that there’s a substantial Amount of evidence that we should have been able to use to demonstrate the corporate motivation or intent in removing older people from the organization.”
A Supreme Court decision is expected in a few months.
