Court dismisses claim of age discrimination

Margaret McCarthy was 53  years old when she was terminated by USA Credit Union in Macomb County.  She was replaced by a woman aged 36.  She sued for age discrimination and retaliation, alleging that the Defendant's management referred to her as an "old bully" who needed to find a different type of job more appropriate to her age.  The Court of Appeals characterized the latter statement as a "stray remark" and summarily dismissed McCarthy's lawsuit.  It also ruled that she had provided no foundation for upholding the retaliation claim.
