Former Shreveport lawyer hears lawsuit against LSU
Legal maneuvers continue in the battle against LSU. WBRZ television reports that all federal judges in the Baton Rouge area have recused themselves from being involved in legal proceedings against the University.
These cases concern the processing by the University of Title IX affairs.
But the New Orleans Federal District Judge, Susie morgan was appointed to hear cases. Morgan spent more than 20 years as a partner at law in the local law firm, Wiener, Weiss & Madison in Shreveport before being appointed to the federal bench by President Obama in 2012. She received her Masters from LSU and also his law school at LSU. .
The two lawsuits currently underway against LSU include a class action lawsuit brought by several current and former students who claim the university failed to properly handle Title IX complaints. The other complaint was brought by Sharon Lewis, associate athletic director of football recruiting and LSU alumni relations. She alleges retaliation after she informs her superiors of allegations against former trainer Les Miles.
