Hutt v. Solvay Pharma., Inc.: Evaluating cases for causation

7th Circuit Fed Ct says no case: Decision-maker said nada about age, and younger workers treated better but not in similarly-situated jobs. The only link was a request that workers submit their birth dates, but no showing that age caused the disciplinary actions that made them ineligible for bonuses. The 7th Circuit, which covers IN, IL, and WI, is not known for its sympathy to workers in employment discrimination cases. Still, shows how careful one must be in evaluating a case for "causation."
