INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) — A Jackson County jury decided that the Kansas City Chiefs did not discriminate against an older maintenance manager when he was fired in 2010.

The jury reached the verdict Wednesday in a lawsuit filed by 61-year-old Steve Cox, who claimed he was fired so the team could hire a younger replacement.

The Chiefs contended during the trial that Cox was fired for giving an employee a raise in defiance of his supervisor's wishes.

Two additional age-discrimination lawsuits against the Chiefs are awaiting trials. The former employees also claim they were wrongly fired.
