Plaintiff Kargbo was a 52-year-old service coordinator for defendant Mendelsohn,

Plaintiff Kargbo was a 52-year-old service coordinator for defendant Mendelsohn, a manager of social and health care services for senior citizens. The plaintiff completed five weeks of training before starting full time. The plaintiff alleges that during this training, the defendant stated, "I don't believe you are the right man for this job. You are 52 years old. This job is normally for young college graduates." The plaintiff further alleges that the defendant employer treated the plaintiff poorly throughout the beginning of his employment. During the plaintiff's three-month evaluation, the defendant listed the plaintiff's performance as "unsatisfactory in the categories of effective communication and learning orientation." The defendant later wrote an interoffice memorandum highlighting several complaints about the plaintiff's work performance. Finally, the defendant submitted a form recommending that the plaintiff be terminated. The plaintiff brought claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and the Age Employment Discrimination Act related to his termination of employment. The defendant moved for summary judgment on all claims. How do you think the court ruled? Why? Kargbo v. Phila. Corp. for Aging, 16 F. Supp. 3d 512 (2014).
