Details needed

The fact that your position was filled with a younger, less qualified person is helpful but not determinative on a claim of age discrimination. Details are needed. Therefore, I suggest that you call so that we can get into those details.

Just note, however, that the fact of a reorganization is an important fact, assuming there really was a reorganization affecting a number of employees. Courts are generally very deferential to employers undergoing reorganizations or reductions in force, although, again, the fact of a reorganization is not determinative.
