Defendant-appellant Metro-North Commuter Railroad ("Metro-North") appeals from a judgment entered in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (McKenna, J.) following a jury trial. Plaintiff-appellee Stephen M. Padilla claimed that his employer, Metro-North, willfully retaliated against him in violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, 29 U.S.C. § 621 et seq., ("ADEA") by demoting him after he participated in an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") investigation of another Metro-North employee's charge of age discrimination. The district court upheld the jury's verdict in favor of Padilla on his willful retaliation claim and awarded him backpay, liquidated damages, and front pay until he is 67 years of age. For the reasons that follow, we affirm the judgment of the district court.
