Gatti v. Community Action Agency of Greene County, Inc.
United States District Court for the Northern District of New York
263 F. Supp. 2d 496 (2003)
Adrienne Gatti (plaintiff) sued her former employer Community Action Agency of Greene County, Inc., and its executive director (collectively, the employer) (defendants) under the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act and state law, alleging that the employer unlawfully terminated Gatti because of her age. On November 1, 2002, a jury found in favor of Gatti, awarding her backpay of $57,453 and amounts for front pay and emotional distress. Gatti requested prejudgment interest on the backpay and urged the court to apply the New York statutory prejudgment-interest rate of 9 percent because there was no applicable federal interest rate.
