    I know it's the world we live in and stuff get's settled all the time. But I am so mad about this. ISU did nothing wrong and we're paying out to get it over with or whatever. That woman deserved to get canned for everything that I've read. You don't even show up for athletic dept fundraisers and then ***** about how your program isn't getting enough money. Seriously shut the **** up.

    Wow, in an at will employment state they couldnt get out of this for less than 400k? ISU needs better lawyers.

    Ugh that's terrible. This of course comes at a time when the University has to make 4.2 million in cuts for the rest of the fiscal year.

    Isn't she the one that bitched about a pre-game prayer down in Baylor too? She should've been canned after that PR mess.

    I imagine this will be an insurance claim of some sort.

    Actually, the settlement our lawyers got probably saved us money.

    The school's lawyers were fine. Bad facts make a bad case. BVD and staff screwed up by not documenting the performance issues along the way, and not letting her know her job was on the line. She papered her file by droping the "inequality" land mine. once she does that the perception that any action the employer takes is retaliation is a tough one to get over. She questions the "inequality." They fire her (probably for real performance issues) but a reasonable jury could see it as retatliation. Plus with the fee shifting provisions involved when she gets a dollar in judgement the school has to pay her attorneys.

    So, where is BVD when a discussion that actually relates to him is taking place?
