WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge plans a hearing Wednesday after a 10th Circuit Court decision that former employees of The Boeing Co. did not show a pattern of age discrimination following the 2005 sale of Boeing's commercial aircraft business.

The status hearing before U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren concerns a dispute over payment of court costs.

Boeing and Spirit AeroSystems want the 94 plaintiffs to pay $54,326 in court costs for transcripts and printing.

The employees contend they should not be forced to pay because they can still individually pursue age discrimination claims. They also argued having to pay would have a chilling effect on others.

Melgren says the court was concerned the filings may be premature.
