As It Turns Out, Morgan Stanley May Be Too Young and Sexy For Its Own Good

Morgan Stanley may now sport 6% less sexual harassment, but they are allegedly still totally hating on grandpa.

A former regional director in Morgan Stanley's wealth-management business filed an age-discrimination lawsuit against the firm and two of its human resources executives Wednesday.
In a lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan, Edward M. Sullivan, 56 years old, alleged that human resources executives Jeffrey Brodsky and Eric Kayne conspired to terminate Sullivan beginning in fall 2005 despite "Sullivan's distinguished, highly acclaimed, twenty-five year career" at the firm.
Sullivan, of Darien, Conn., was terminated in May 2006, according to the lawsuit.
The complaint alleges the executives went so far as to interfere with the annual evaluation process at the firm at the end of 2005 and to substitute "their own made-up poison-pen critique of Sullivan in place of the legitimate evaluations of him."
