Law360, New York (September 8, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT) -- Kelley Drye & Warren LLP fired back at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York on Wednesday, ripping the agency's claim that the firm's retirement policy violates age discrimination laws and attacking the performance of the partner at the heart of the dispute.
In its second amended complaint filed in August, the commission alleges that Kelley Drye's retirement policy violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act by depriving partners over 70 — so-called life partners — of compensation awarded to younger attorneys.
