Former University of Iowa radiology Professor Malik Juweid has asked to be the one who deposes UI President Sally Mason in his lawsuit against her.

The UI fired Juweid on Aug. 24. Both parties are in the midst of a suit filed in May 2011 that claims officials retaliated against Juweid for speaking out in his department against discrimination ldirected against Arab Americans and the medical mistreatment of children.

During a case hearing on Sept. 10, Juweid pleaded with 6th Judicial Judge Judge Patrick Grady, asking him to force officials to depose Mason immediately.

Grady ruled the depositions for both Juweid and Mason must occur in the same calendar week, which were tentatively scheduled for Oct. 29.

In an email The Daily Iowan received, Juweid proposes that same date for Iowa Assistant Attorney General George Caroll’s deposition of him. Juweid said he would depose Mason the following day.

The email said Juweid’s deposition of Mason would take place at the Iowa Bar Association in Des Moines.
