At 10.15pm as the Lincolns watched in the play, John Wilkes Booth crept into the presidential state box and pulled out his Philadelphia Deringer pistol and fired a single shot into the back of Abraham Lincoln's head.
Barton fired off a complaint to Zimmer’s VP of Human Resources, alleging age discrimination.
The next day, he left town for a “previously scheduled one-week vacation.” The Court described what happened next: While Barton was gone, Richardson told various employees that Barton was “done” at Zimmer.
Zimmer concedes for the sake of argument that Richardson reduced Barton’s job duties because of his age.
After Richardson had been Barton’s supervisor for about a year, he gave Barton a “a bad performance review.” This, apparently, was the last straw.
Here, Barton cannot be reinstated because of the psychological disability brought on by the pressure of updating the knee class.
But Richardson did not assign the class to Barton; Richardson had already been terminated.Secret Service reaction: Men struggle to contain Hinckley behind a heavily armed agent as President Reagan's press secretary, James Brady, and officer Thomas Delahanty lie on the ground with serious gunshot wounds The FBI released this self-portrait of John Hinckley, who attempted to assassinate President Reagan (right) in March, 1981. It was part of the evidence used in Hinckley's trial Within hours of President John F Kennedy's assassination in Dallas, most Americans were familiar with the name Lee Harvey Oswald.Certain images of him - posing with a rifle, recoiling from Jack Ruby's gun - have been ingrained in the nation's memory. The Warren Commission, established by President Lyndon Johnson to investigate the assassination, concluded in 1964 that Oswald acted alone, firing three shots from a window in his Dallas workplace, the Texas School Book Depository. In 1978, the House Select Committee on Assassinations ended its own inquiry by finding that Kennedy 'was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy'. The Warren Commission said Oswald left the book depository moments after shots were fired from the sixth floor, returned by bus and cab to his rooming house, then ventured out again - soon encountering a Dallas police officer who stopped him based on descriptions of the assassination suspect.Milton assigned this task after Barton returned from his earlier medical leave, and Barton admits that she did so based on Zimmer’s corporate needs, not because of his age. Barton’s disability was caused by an unrelated job assignment from his new supervisor.* * * although Zimmer concedes for the sake of argument that Richardson removed Barton’s salesskills teaching duties because of his age, Barton suffered no loss of compensation or benefits.The ADEA permits reinstatement, back pay, and other “legal or equitable relief as may be appropriate,” 29 U. To recover front pay as an equitable remedy in lieu of reinstatement, Barton would have to establish causation—that is, that Richardson’s discriminatory removal of his job duties caused the disability that prevents his reinstatement.
