Age and Gender Discrimination: Lisa Madigan v. Harvey N. Levin

Harvey N. Levin was hired as an Illinois Assistant District Attorney in 2000. He was fired in 2006 when he was over 60 years old. He believed that he was fired due to his age and gender. He sued under the Age Discrimination Employment Act and the Seventh Circuit court dismissed the case.
