You can read this post and much more about the goings-on at Ashland University by visiting Eye On Ashland, a watchdog journalism website I created to keep an eye on the university administration and its questionable practices.
That website has been reported to Facebook as one that violates the social media site’s Community Standards (it doesn’t) because they don’t want people seeing news critical of AU.
I’m just pretty much going to leave this file here for you to peruse. It’s the university’s trial brief and their objections to jury instructions.
One thing of note that I noticed here; one of the jury instructions offered by the plaintiffs include a list of every way the university may have violated Article XII of the Faculty Rules and Regulations (which outlines the way that tenured faculty can be terminated). The defense doesn’t think the jury needs to know that.
You’ll also see in the trial brief how the university’s lawyers are doing everything they can to limit a potential payout that a jury might order if it rules in favor of the plaintiffs.
