State of Missouri Age Discrimination cases

I need some help finding relevant case-law on a project. I need to find case law (both State and Federal), statutes (both State and Federal), and recent newspaper and journal articles relating to a fact pattern below. The state I need to find case law for is Missouri.

In the end I (not you) will be writing a memorandum using this case law. My issue is that I never seem to be on point with the legal "issue." God knows, but I seem to stray around the edges.

The fact pattern I need to approach (and your help approaching to find relevant material - at least three cases along with Federal and Missouri Statutes) is:

XXX Company promoted Jason, a 35 year old employee, to a position as foreman while passing over David, a 60 year old employee. Jason has been with the Company only two years but according to the immediate supervisor, "is going places in this Company". David has been with the company for 15 years with excellent evaluations. When David applied for the job, his supervisor told him he was too old for the job and he preferred a younger man who would be in the job for "more than just a couple of years". David is now threatening suit.

Discrimination and Retaliation (Race, Gender, Age, Religious, Disability)

Please provide some solid ideas and research websites for FEDEX pertaining to the following subjects:

? First, please describe the organization you have chosen from the Fortune list. What number is it on the list? Provide a paragraph discussing this organization's primary business, number of employees, its mission, vision and values and some HRM department-related information.
? Now please examine the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) in detail from your background readings and research. What is its purpose and coverage? What governmental body is responsible for its enforcement?
? Discuss your SLP organization's practices as they relate to ADEA compliance.
? What specific employment actions/policies/procedures/processes (for example) might be especially susceptible to age discrimination claims? Why do you say this?
? What specific actions/policies/procedures/processes (for example) should an organization (such as your SLP organization) do to ensure they do not discriminate due to age of applicants and employees?

Discuss private-sector HRM terminology, HRM background readings, research, and business examples of HRM policies, practices, and procedures as they might apply to your chosen organization. Bring in other private-sector employers' HRM activities, systems, practices and procedures as examples that fit into your assignment discussion.
