A Tama, Iowa resident is suing the University of Iowa and the state Board of Regents for refusing to and failing to work with him. He claims this made it difficult for him to finish school, according to court documents.

John Anderson, 50, alleges Keri Hornbuckle, associate dean for the UI College of Engineering, lied to him about course requirements and sent emails to other university officials. She “conspired to ostracize” him, he contends.

Anderson is also afraid that Hornbuckle could jeopardize agreements he claims he has with various UI officials regarding his ability to take classes and graduate, naming UI Vice President for Student Life Thomas Rocklin, Peter Hubbard, the director of academic standasrd in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Jane Dorman, a director of admissions for the College of Engineering, among other emails.

Anderson was granted a petition waiving him from normal court costs; he is representing himself in the lawsuit.

He is seeking monetary damages totaling $105,000 to help cover additional cover costs and financial hardship.
