50-year-old sues American Idol for age discrimination.
Only people ages 16 to 24 were allowed to audition for American Idol 2 last fall, so a 50-year-old university lecturer who was not allowed to audition is now suing the show claiming its rules violate laws against age discrimination. His lawyer says Drew “Cummings was summarily denied the right to compete and he was discriminated against solely because of his age, not his ability as a singer,” the BBC reports.
