BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A California man says he lost his job on a North Dakota oil rig because his supervisor thought he was too old.

Jimmy Delap, of West Pointe, Calif., has filed an age discrimination lawsuit against Tulsa, Okla.-based Unit Drilling Company. The complaint says Delap was 62 years old when he was fired.

The lawsuit accuses Delap’s supervisor of making repeated public comments that Delap was too old and he wanted a young crew.

Attorneys for the drilling company could not be immediately reached for comment.
