Susan Guyett settles

Dateline: Fri 02 Mar 2012

From today's Indianapolis Business Journal by J.K. Wall:


"Former Indianapolis Star columnist Susan Guyett has settled her age-discrimination lawsuit with the newspaper, according to her attorney.

"Kathleen DeLaney confirmed the settlement Friday morning but would not disclose the terms or timing of the agreement. A settlement hearing had been scheduled for Wednesday at the federal courthouse in Indianapolis. And the case was set to go to trial in April.

"Guyett, 63, sued the Star and its owner, Virginia-based Gannett Co., in April 2010, alleging that her age led to her dismissal in December 2008.

"Guyett wrote the “Talk of Our Town” column. She charged in her suit that the content and concept of the column remained the same after her dismissal, when it was assigned to Cathy Kightlinger, who is 42.

"The Star filed a motion to dismiss the suit, which Judge Richard L. Young denied in late December.

"Craig Borowski, an attorney representing the Star, did not return a phone call seeking comment Friday morning."


Everyone hopes she got a ton of dough.

Great for Susan. Too bad this thing never made it to a jury. Sure the Star didn't want its discriminatory decision-making processes made known to the community.

Maybe "great for Susan", maybe not.

Maybe they threatened her with something to achieve a settlement.

Since settlement agreements are often sealed, we may never know.

The concept may have remained the same, but the content is a poor shadow of what Susan G reported.
