A federal lawsuit that alleged Vineyard Vines discriminated against an executive based on her age, gender and disability has been dismissed at the request of both parties.

Anne Dauer, the former senior vice president of retail at the preppy fashion brand, sued Vineyard Vines and its founders Ian and Shep Murray. She claimed the company, which started by selling neckties out of a Jeep on Martha’s Vineyard more than 20 years ago, fired her after she received heart surgery and replaced her with a less experienced and younger male employee.

In a complaint filed in 2020 in U.S. District Court in Connecticut, where the company is now based, Ms. Dauer claimed her termination was an example of a company culture that considered middle-aged women a detriment to the brand.

The company argued Ms. Dauer was terminated because she wasn’t performing her job properly.

A six-hour settlement conference in December was unsuccessful, and the case was scheduled for trial in mid-January before Judge Vanessa L. Bryant.

Just weeks before trial, however, both Ms. Dauer and Vineyard Vines jointly agreed to dismiss the case, suggesting a settlement had been reached. Ms. Dauer’s attorney did not respond to a request for comment and Vineyard Vines’ lawyer declined to comment.

Vineyard Vines’ first brick and mortar store was in Edgartown, and the company, which has expanded its New England chic throughout the U.S., now also has retail stores in Oak Bluffs and Vineyard Haven. Its corporate headquarters is in Stamford, Conn.
