LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A judge has declared a mistrial in the case of a former Dona Ana County sheriff's deputy who says he was discriminated against because of his age.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that 3rd Judicial District Judge Jim Martin called the mistrial last week in the case involving former deputy Steven Foldy.

The 55-year-old Foldy says he was repeatedly been subjected to disparaging comments because of his age and that he'd been denied participation in overtime duties that were instead given to younger employees.

The mistrial was declared after attorneys found over courtroom processes.

Foldy says he'll continue to pursue his complaint in the courts.

A new trial is expected to be set, but before a different state judge.
