LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- An age discrimination lawsuit filed by a former University of Kansas employee has been dismissed in Douglas County District Court.

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/XZ3Ncq ) reports Cynthia Cook filed suit in state and federal court in 2011 claiming she was laid off in 2009 and passed over for another job at the school because of her age.

The university contended Cook and several other people were laid off for budget reasons. Cook was hired in 1980 as a secretary and was working as an information specialist in customer service when she was laid off.

Cook's federal lawsuit was dismissed in October, while her district court suit was dropped earlier this month. Her lawyer declined to comment.
