Schoonmaker v. Spartan Graphics Leasing, LLC, No. 09-1732

District court's grant of summary judgment in favor of the defendant in plaintiff's action under the Age Discrimination Employment Act is affirmed where: 1) district court did not err in holding that plaintiff failed to establish her prima facie case; and 2) plaintiff has not created a triable issue as to pretext since none of plaintiff's evidence gives rise to an inference that defendant's decision to terminate plaintiff was so unreasonable as to create an inference of pretext.
