Former Equipment Manager Sues Bills, Alleging Ageism
When Dave Hojnowski, the Buffalo Bills’ longtime equipment manager and a presence in the Bills locker room for 35 years, left the team last year, the Bills described it as a retirement.
Hojnowski tells a far different story in the federal lawsuit he filed against the team Thursday.
In the suit, Hojnowski says he was fired, not retired, and that his age – he’s 54 – was a key factor in the Bills’ decision to let him go.
“This guy was there for 35 years,” said Andrew Fleming, the attorney representing Hojnowski. “He’s been doing this for decades. He even trained his replacement.”
Scott P. Horton, an attorney for the Bills, said the team could not comment at this point.
