- Judge Emil Giordano on Wednesday briefly considered a request by Lehigh University's legal representation to throw out a $1.3 million lawsuit over a former graduate student's C+, but Giordano decided to allow the case to proceed.
- Megan Thode is seeking a new grade and compensation for lost wages in the suit.
- Giordano reportedly chided both sides in the case, saying it is "regrettable that this case hasn't been resolved."
From the article:
"... Judge Emil Giordano went into his chambers to consider the request by Lehigh, and came out a short time later and denied it.
Giordano said the legal standard to throw the case at the point is strict. He said he has to take the evidence in a light most favorable to Thode, which means the case must continue. Now, Lehigh lawyers will present their case. ..."
