Univ. of Cincinnati Law School Dean Sues the School Alleging Retaliation
April 25, 2017
Law school Jennifer Bard’s complaint asserts UC illegally placed Bard on administrative leave in March immediately following her response to local media reports about financial deficits at the law school and faculty members’ responses to her efforts to reduce those deficits. She alleges UC violated Bard’s constitutional rights as a state employee in violation of the First and Fourteenth Amendments, the university’s policies, and her five-year contract with UC.
