In Kimel v. State of Florida Board of Regents, the Supreme Court rules that the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) provision granting state employees or applicants the right to file a lawsuit against state employers is unconstitutional. State employees can file an ADEA charge against their employer, EEOC can investigate, but the private individual has no federal suit rights. Only EEOC can sue state employers for ADEA violations.
