UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE SIXTH CIRCUIT
LEONARD GREEN, Clerk
HORIZON SCIENCE ACADEMY DENNISON MIDDLE SCHOOL, INC.
ON APPEAL FROM THE
UNITED STATES DISTRICT
COURT FOR THE
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF
BEFORE: NORRIS, COLE, and KETHLEDGE, Circuit Judges.
PER CURIAM. Plaintiff Ron Gehrlein appeals from the magistrate’s award of summary
judgment to defendant Horizon Science Academy - Denison Middle School, Inc. In 2008, plaintiff
sued Horizon alleging discrimination under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, 29
U.S.C. § 621, et seq; and state law claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress and punitive
damages. The parties consented to have the case heard by a magistrate judge, who granted summary
judgment for the defendant on all issues.
Having had the benefit of oral argument and having carefully considered the record on
appeal, the briefs of the parties, and the applicable law, we are not persuaded that the magistrate
judge erred in granting summary judgment to the defendant.

Gehrlein v. Horizon Science Academy
Because the reasoning which supports judgment for defendant has been articulated by the
magistrate judge, the issuance of a detailed written opinion by this court serves no useful purpose.
Accordingly, the judgment of the district court is affirmed upon the reasoning employed by the
magistrate judge in his Opinion and Order filed on November 16, 2009.
