HOUSTON – PAE Applied Technologies, LLC is accused in a state district lawsuit of using a man’s illiteracy in technology as a reason to fire him for his age, recent Harris County District Court records show.

Court documents filed on Oct. 18 in the 125th District Court explain that 73-year-old Jimmy Bird’s co-workers pressured him to join Facebook, and when the plaintiff attempted to log onto to the social media Web site, he “clicked something accidentally and pages started popping up without his control.”

One of the pages was reportedly pornographic in nature, to which the defendant disciplined Bird by firing him from his plant operator position.

“PAE wanted an excuse to terminate an old employee with health issues,” the original petition says.

Consequently, the plaintiff seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.

He is represented by Alfonso Kennard, Jr. of the law firm Kennard Miller Hernandez P.C. in Houston.
