The basis of the decision is that you can't do that. When a man named Anthony Brunt was demoted by his employer -- the Water Systems utility in Lexington, Tenn. -- he cried foul.

Sensing that the move had little do with his on-the-job performance, Brunt filed suit alleging that the Lexington utility was engaging in age discrimination. Brunt's case eventually made its way to the federal courts, which ruled in his favor on July 25 for more than $450,000, according to an AP report.
