Lois A. Fore vs. Rite Aid of West Virginia Inc. and Fred Tackett
PA-Thomas H. Peyton; J- Spaulding
* Fore claims Rite Aid discriminated against and fired her because of her age. Her birth date is Jan. 24, 1947, so she was 60 years old when she was fired on April 16, 2007, even though she had been a faithful and diligent employee since Sept. 8, 1980. Fore demands pre- and post-judgment against the Defendants in an amount sufficient to compensate for past and future lost wages, loss of employment benefits, aggravation, annoyance, inconvenience, humiliation, embarrassment, emotional and mental distress, and loss of personal dignity, as well as punitive damages as a result of their will, wanton, and/or reckless conduct and total disregard for the Plaintiff's civil rights. She wishes that the Court award attorney fees and costs and declare the defendants' actions a violation of State Law and enjoin them from engaging in further discriminatory practices.
