Saffos v. Avaya, Inc., 2008 WL 2663107 (N.J. Super., Law Div., June 16, 2008) — A Morris County jury awarded $10 million in punitive damages against Defendant corporation where Plaintiff demonstrated that a new department head fired eight people, with an average age of 49, and replaced them with individuals averaging 35 years of age. The jury discounted the company’s argument that the new department head was revamping the department, which had a poor reputation, as well as the company’s evidence that the department head in question had hired, attempted to hire, or transferred into the department multiple employees in their 40’s and 50’s.
