Wowie! I Wish I Was A Lesbian

The University of Iowa will pay $6.5 million to settle lawsuits asserting it discriminated against former Field Hockey Coach Tracey Griesbaum and former Associate Athletics Director Jane Meyer, the UI announced Friday.
The settlement, which includes the $1.43 million a jury awarded Meyer earlier this month, came after both sides agreed earlier this week to delay motions seeking additional damages in the Meyer case.
Much of the three-week Meyer trial focused on how the UI Athletics Department handled the firing of Griesbaum in 2014 after some student-athletes complained she had been verbally abusive. She had also sued the university for discrimination, and her case was set to begin trial June 5.
Meyer, her longtime partner, was transferred out of the department in later eliminated. She has sued also in federal court
