SHERMAN – An airline seats manufacturer is the subject of a federal age discrimination lawsuit from a Gainesville man.

In the 8-page suit filed on Aug. 8 in the Sherman Division of the Eastern District of Texas, Jerome Dietz alleges that Zodiac Seats US, LLC terminated him from a production control manager position but retained a younger colleague.

The defendant employed Dietz from Aug. 1969 to April of last year. In that span, the plaintiff reportedly worked in various positions.

He says the company refused to rehire him for open positions because of his age.

Consequently, Dietz seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

Susan Motley and Grace Weatherly of the law firm Wood Weatherly in Denton are representing the complainant.
