Court clears law dean of bias
A U.S. District judge has dismissed with prejudice a free-speech and equal-protection lawsuit filed against the outgoing dean of the University of Iowa College of Law.
During the 2006-07 academic year, Teresa Wagner applied to be the instructor of the Legal Analysis, Writing, and Research class at the college. When Wagner wasn’t hired for the position, she accused Dean Carolyn Jones and other UI faculty of discriminating against her based on her political views.
A dismissal with prejudice means Wagner is barred from making the same claim again. The court also ruled she must pay all court costs.
