CHARLESTON -- A former employee is suing Moses Cadillac Buick GMC Truck, Inc., claiming he was discriminated against based on his age.
Delbert Canterbury was employed by the defendant from Nov. 1, 2009, until May 31, according to a complaint filed Oct. 16 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
Canterbury claims his employment was terminated based on his age.
At all times, Canterbury properly performed the job duties as required by Moses, according to the suit, and his termination was in violation of the West Virginia Human Rights Act.
Canterbury claims he is entitled to reinstatement to his former employment, or in the alternative, front pay in lieu of reinstatement for the loss of future income and other pecuniary employment-related benefits.
The defendant’s actions were willful and intentional, according to the suit, and violate state public policy.
Canterbury is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. He is being represented by J. Michael Ranson, Cynthia M. Ranson, George B. Morrone III and G. Patrick Jacobs.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Carrie Webster.
