Apropos to our March 12th blog, where we reported that the law firm of Kelley Drye had entered into a consent decree to settle a lawsuit which alleged that the firm’s 70 year old mandatory retirement policy discriminated against its partners in violation of the ADEA, we note that the New York State Bar Association repeated its opposition to age-related mandatory retirement polices, calling it “not acceptable.”

The ABA has opposed age-related mandatory retirement polices since 2007.
