62-year-old sues Nemacolin Woodlands Resort for age discrimination

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.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
