Law360, New York (September 20, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT) -- Exxon Mobil Corp. on Monday defended in Texas federal court its former policy of forcing pilots to retire at age 60, arguing the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission could not show that age was not a valid employment factor in that line of work.
The oil giant sought to again end the age discrimination lawsuit after the Fifth Circuit snatched its district court victory away and remanded the suit to allow the EEOC another chance to challenge the retirement policy.
