Practice makes perfect is a mantra many musicians know all too well. And it appears it was the strategy that a violinist in New York was using in his effort to get an age discrimination lawsuit heard before a different judge -- one who isn't quite so old.

But it didn't work. Instead, the lawsuit that Martin Stoner refiled against a New York City nonprofit ended up in front of the same judge -- 88-year-old U.S. District Court Judge Robert Patterson, who Stoner previously complained was "too old," the New York Daily News reported Monday.
