U.S. Supreme Court
Markham v. Geller, 451 U.S. 945 (1981)
Markham v. Geller
Decided April 27, 1981
451 U.S. 945
ON PETITION FOR CERTIORARI TO THE UNITED
STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE SECOND CIRCUIT
The petition for a writ of certiorari is denied.
JUSTICE REHNQUIST, dissenting.
This case presents the question whether a school board may enact a policy which, for budgetary reasons, favors the hiring of less experienced teachers. Because I think the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit erred in holding that such a policy violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), 29 U.S.C. § 621 et seq., I dissent from the denial of the petition for a writ of certiorari.
