85-year old New York Met beer vendor’s age discrimination lawsuit dismissed by court

A lower court’s decision to dismiss Mildred Block’s age discrimination lawsuit against Aramark, Inc. was upheld earlier this week, when the New York Appellate Division found that replacing Ms. Block, an 85-year old New Jersey woman, with a 75-year old woman did not amount to age discrimination.  Last year, Mildred Block sued the concession giant Aramark when she alleged that she was  assigned to a less lucrative food selling station at New York Met home baseball games, where she made less money.   Stadium concessionaire Aramark denied discriminating against the elderly Ms. Block and justified their move to replace the beer selling veteran upon complaints they received from customers about long lines at Block’s former beer stand.
