Meyer Nave, a law firm, distributed an e-mail stating that there is “Good news for California public employers out of the U.S. Supreme Court today:[October 15, 2013] the high court officially kicked the age bias case of Madigan v.

The e-mail reports that “The bottom line for California public employers is that the rule in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit under Ahlmeyer v. Nev. Sys. of Higher Educ., 555 F.3d 1051, 1057 (9th Cir. 2009) remains in effect: the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) is the exclusive remedy in federal courts for age discrimination claims against state and municipal employers, precluding equal protection claims under 42 U.S.C. §1983.”
