Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. A Manhattan violinist filed an age discrimination suit. 60-year-old Martin Stoner sued the nonprofit Young Concert Artists after it barred him from a contest based on age restriction. When his ageism suit was thrown out, the New York Daily News reports Stoner moved to have the 88-year-old judge replaced. The judge, the musician argued, isn't qualified. The reason: he's too old.
