It's a good thing Rod Stewart appears to be ageless. If a prominent entertainment law firm has its way, Stewart -- who can't seem to avoid lawsuits -- is going to need to keep on rockin' for several years in order to pay off a lawsuit.

Tuesday, the firm Glaser, Weil, Fink, Jacobs, Howard & Shapiro filed a $3.3 million lawsuit against the British crooner, claiming he owes them for work on three cases.
