On October 7, 2013, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Madigan v. Levin. The question in this case is whether state and local government employees may avoid the requirements of the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act by bringing age discrimination claims directly under the 14th Amendment's Equal Protection Clause and Title 42 U.S. Code Section 1983.

To discuss the case, we have Rachel Mondl, an associate in the Washington, D.C. office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher.
