Finding that two women were unlawfully terminated on account of their age by their employer, in Behar v. Union Bank, a California Superior Court jury awarded both plaintiffs a total of $2.6 million in damages. The two women, ages 49 and 63, alleged that their terminations were motivated by their age. The employer claimed that the two women were terminated for misconduct (investing in a condominium complex with a bank customer), but the evidence suggested that the investment occurred two years prior to the firings and the employees' supervisor was aware of the investment but did nothing about it, and the plaintiffs were never disciplined for the investment.
