Dismissed former CBS 5 reporters lose a round in court

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Two veteran former CBS 5 reporters who were let go in 2008 have lost another round in their age discrimination lawsuit against the station. A three-judge panel of the Ninth U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals said John Lobertini, then 47, and Bill Schechner, 66, who were part of a cost-cutting purge that disproportionally affected older employees, failed to prove intentional bias on the part of the station’s management. Their lawyer says they will ask the full court for a rehearing. Chronicle
