A 9-year old girl and her family are suing the centuries-old German boy's choir for rejecting her over her gender. The girl was trying to join the State and Cathedral choir that was founded in 1465 and restricted for the boys only. Her family said the rejection is discriminatory and also violates her equal right to opportunities from a state-funded institution. The ruling is due on Friday, and her name has been kept hidden.
