Damon's owner denies claims he fired executive because of age
The owner of Damon's Hospitality Corp. says he fired the restaurant company's former president and chief operating officer because the man made costly decisions, not because of his age or any disability.
Edward B. Dunlap, owner of the restaurant company and several other businesses, said in court papers responding to a federal lawsuit that Michael Schumacher of Ross cost him millions of dollars in a series of failed restaurants, including three Damon's locations, during the seven years he employed him.
Schumacher sued Dunlap in October in U.S. District Court, Downtown, claiming that Dunlap fired him on Sept. 26, 2011, because he was 57 years old at the time and had developed health problems.
