A 45-year-old sales manager sued under federal age-bias law, saying an insurance company discriminated against older managers. He argued that the company's hiring policy targeted younger managers to match its recruitment effort at college campuses. The allegation alone was enough to keep the case moving forward in an Illinois federal court. (Beard v. Prudential Ins. Co. of Am., No. 00-C-3874, N.D. Ill., 2002)
