Two-time Emmy winner Clausen, 78, was fired in August 2017 after 27 years with the Fox animated series. At the time of his firing, producers said Clausen would have an "ongoing role" with the show. In his lawsuit, Clausen was informed that the show was "taking the music in a different direction.” The lawsuit states: "This reason was pretextual and false. Instead, Plaintiff’s unlawful termination was due to perceived disability and age.” The suit doesn't state Clausen's disability.
