The former longtime equipment manager of the Buffalo Bills says the team fired him last year because of his age.
Fifty-four-year-old Dave Hojnowski alleges in a federal lawsuit filed Thursday that the team used his age a deciding factor in his dismissal.
Hojnowski's suit claims he was fired shortly after his wife inquired about a health insurance benefit he would qualify for when he turned 55.
Attorney Andrew Fleming tells The Buffalo News his client was a faithful employee for 35 years. The lawsuit says the team called Hojnowski's departure a retirement even though he was dismissed.
An attorney for the Bills said the team could not comment on the suit.
