Markham v. Geller - 451 U.S. 945 (1981)


U.S. Supreme Court

Markham v. Geller, 451 U.S. 945 (1981)

Markham v. Geller

No. 80-1258

Decided April 27, 1981

451 U.S. 945

ON PETITION FOR CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED

STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT

The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.

JUSTICE REHNQUIST, dissenting.

This case presents the question whether a school board may enact a policy which, for budgetary reasons, favors the hiring of less experienced teachers. Because I think the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit erred in holding that such a policy violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), 29 U.S.C. § 621 et seq., I dissent from the denial of the petition for a writ of certiorari.
