A former University of Iowa employee's lawsuit against the university will continue with a court-ordered oral argument, according to court documents filed today.

Former UI Vice President for Student Services Phil Jones, who sued UI President Sally Mason and the UI in June 2009, originally requested an oral argument in September.

Court documents said the court ordered an oral argument regarding motions in the case to take place Nov. 1, with two hours of court time allotted for the argument.

Mason fired Jones in 2008 after an investigation on his handling of a sexual-assault case came into question. His lawsuit claims Mason individually and the UI as defendants and alleges the firing jeopardized his reputation and financial situation.
