CINCINNATI - A panel of the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on May 7 ruled that a district court properly determined that a group of pilots who sued their union alleging discrimination for not getting a full payout of benefits from a bankruptcy agreement with Northwest Airlines did not show that there had been a violation of the Age Discrimination Employment Act (ADEA) (Frederick N. Bondurant, et al. v. Air Line Pilots Association International, et al., No. 10-1904, Chapter 11, 6th Cir.; 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 9215).
