The case of the day is Dahman v. Embassy of the State of Qatar (D.D.C. 2018). El-Sayed Dahman, an Egyptian national who lived in Virginia, was employed by the Qatari Embassy as its chief accountant. When he turned 65, the Embassy discharged him. There was no question that his age was the reason for the discharge—both the Ambassador and the Director of Human Resources said so in writing. Qatar evidently had a policy of firing employees when they reached what it regarded as the retirement age. Dahman sued under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Qatar defaulted, and on a motion for default judgment, the court had to determine whether Qatar had foreign sovereign immunity.
