A pretrial conference involving former University of Iowa employee has been rescheduled, according to court documents.

Ravi Sood, a former visiting associate in the UI Nuclear Medicine Department, filed a suit against the UI, UI Hospitals and Clinics, state Board of Regents, and Michael Graham, director of nuclear medicine in the Carver College of Medicine in January 2010 alleging a breach of an employment contract.

Sood began work in the department in July 2008, but he had his full clinical privileges revoked less than a month after he was granted them, court documents said.

Sood alleges Graham and the UI did not follow the correct process outlined by the UIHC before terminating his privileges. The lawsuit also claimed Graham allegedly forced him to sign a document that reduced his time commitment to 55 percent time.

Sood’s pretrial conference has been postponed from Sept. 2 to 9:30 a.m. Friday at the Johnson County Courthouse, according to court documents.
