Taylor's suit says he was terminated without warning, without notice, without explanation in September and that he was fired due to his age. His suit also says he was diagnosed with kidney stones in April 2013 and that his termination was also related to surgery for that condition, which kept him from spending as much time on his job as he normally did.
