Gaines alleges that in August 2019, Ruffin, the executive director of community corrections, stated, “words to the effect, that (Gaines) was too old to be working at CCSO,” according to the suit. She also pointed out the pension he stands to collect from Chicago police, his previous employer, and asked why he didn’t retire, Gaines alleges.
