Legendary sportscaster Warner Wolf has lost his age discrimination lawsuit against Don Imus. The reason he lost was because he lives in Florida.
The New York Daily News reports that Manhattan Supreme Court Justice James d’Auguste ruled that, “Due to the fact that Wolf is a Florida resident that worked in Florida, he lacks any viable claims…since the impact of any alleged discriminatory conduct would have been in Florida. The only specificity contained in complaint are stray comments made by Imus, a member of same protected class as Wolf.”
The 80-year old Wolf claimed Imus mocked his senior status before firing him in 2016. The judge also wrote that the examples Wolf filed with the court did not rise to the level of age discrimination by Imus — since he is also old.
Before Imus retired Wolf was replaced by Sid Rosenberg.
