City of Riverside and Mayor Kathy Rose sued for age discrimination

Former city administrator David Blackburn has filed an age discrimination lawsuit against the City of Riverside and Mayor Kathy Rose.

Blackburn claims that he was discriminated against because of his age when he was given the option to retire or to be terminated after an outside investigation found that he and three other city employees were responsible for an unsigned contract.

According to the complaint, the other three employees, who are around ten years younger than Blackburn, did not lose their jobs over the unsigned contract issue, and Blackburn alleges that he was replaced by a 29-year-old woman.

The city has denied Blackburn’s allegations of age discrimination.
