Yoron Cohen settled his defamation and age discrimination lawsuit against his former brokerage JLL, according to records filed in federal court.
Terms of the settlement were not immediately known. Cohen and JLL did not respond to requests for comment.
Five months later, he sued JLL, alleging he was repeatedly denied contract extensions and that the company favored younger brokers. He also claimed his former bosses called him “old,” “tired” and “checked out.”
Cohen accused JLL of defamation because an unnamed company executive told The Real Deal in January 2017 that Cohen had been told his team was underperforming. (Full disclosure: TRD received a subpoena in the case.)
