WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Congress never intended, when it extended age bias administrative and judicial procedures and remedies to government employees, to permit state and municipal workers to "frustrate this regime or bypass it entirely using the more general remedies of $(42 U.S. Code$) Section 1983," Solicitor General Michael A. Scodro of Chicago argued Oct. 7 before the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and four additional attorney general employees (Lisa Madigan, et al. v. Harvey Levin, No. 12-872, U.S. Sup.).
