Employer-Employee : Age Discrimination – Evidence

(1)Where the trial court excluded the testimony from or about 17 other former employees in an age discrimination case because the plaintiff had not alleged in his charge of discrimination or in his petition a pattern and practice of age discrimination, , the exclusion was not an abuse of discretion.

(2) Where the trial court excluded “me too” testimony from or about other former employees offered prove discriminatory intent in an age discrimination case, the trial court did not abuse its discretion because the testimony was not logically relevant as the former employees were not similarly situated to the plaintiff.

Judgment is affirmed.
