Man files lawsuit against Iowa law school for age discrimination
A Michigan man is suing Iowa University in a hiring discrimination lawsuit. Donald Dobkin of West Bloomfield claims that he did not receive a job at the school's College of Law because of his age.
Dobkin applied for a position as a law professor in 2008. Dobkin claims that he was well-qualified for the position, citing his 25 years of experience, numerous law journal articles, and experience leading the largest immigration law firm in Michigan.
In supporting his claim, Dobkin points to evidence that the law school had not hired a faculty member over the age of 40 in the last 10 years. For the claim, Dobkin is seeking damages of receiving a position and an award for any lost wages.
