A Fayette County man has filed a federal lawsuit alleging Nemacolin Woodlands Resort near Farmington terminated his employment because of his age.

Lee Stock, 62, of Box 47, Chalk Hill, worked for the resort for eight years, beginning in 2000, according to the filing in U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh.

He was let go from his position as links manager in March 2008, shortly after a meeting in which his supervisor, Dennis Clark, advised him the Links Pro Shop "was going to be an exclusive Nike apparel and equipment shop and he needed a young and experienced person to manage the shop," the suit says.

Stock was advised he was let go because of the economy, according to the lawsuit, but he was replaced shortly afterwards by a 26-year-old.

Through his attorney, Samuel J. Cordes of Pittsburgh, Stock is alleging age discrimination.

Jeff Nobers, Nemacolin spokesman, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
