An age bias trial involving North Dakota State University and its former sports information director, George Ellis, moved into its second day Wednesday in Cass County District Court.

Ellis blames his 2004 firing on age discrimination.

Athletic Director Gene Taylor's testimony Wednesday included a discussion of media guides that were received up to 8½ weeks after they were due while Ellis was an employee.

Ellis' attorney, Patricia Monson, entered into evidence dates the three late guides were received as well as dates of four guides that were late and handled by the women's sports information director, who was not fired.

Ellis, who was 59 when he was fired, also testified.
