WINFIELD — A Putnam County man is suing a tire business, alleging age discrimination and wrongful discharge.
Dennis R. Davis filed a complaint April 20 in Putnam Circuit Court against American Tire Distributors Inc. and Jimmy Elliott, alleging they failed to provide an equal employment opportunity.
According to the complaint, Davis, 59, suffered loss of income and employment benefits, emotional distress, embarrassment and mental anguish after he was discharged from his employment at American Tire on July 21, 2015. The plaintiff alleges the defendants subjected him to discriminatory actions and terminated his employment because of his age.
Davis seeks trial by jury, compensatory and punitive damages, reinstatement or front pay, attorney fees and court costs, plus all other just and proper relief. He is represented by attorneys J. Michael Ranson and Cynthia M. Ranson of Ranson Law Offices in Charleston, and by G. Patrick Jacobs of Jacobs Law Office in Charleston.
