Docket – September 10, 2018

U.S. District Court – Western District of Virginia

Shenton v. Aerojet Rocketdyne, Inc.. Sept. 10, 2018. WDVA at Charlottesville (Moon).

A 40-year employee of a rocket manufacturer can proceed on his claim that the company passed him over for promotions based on his age. He plausibly alleged that the defendant’s “high potential” program favored only younger employees for advancement in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act.

Calloway v. Brown, Sept. 10, 2018. WDVA at Roanoke (Dillon).

Federal prison guards had probable cause to strip-search a plaintiff during her visit with an inmate, the court held. The inmate had a history of receiving contraband, and the plaintiff appeared nervous and was “messing with” her waistband during the visit. The court granted summary judgment on Fourth Amendment and state-law claims arising from the search.
