University of Iowa Law School discrimination lawsuit

Teresa Wagner filed a discrimination lawsuit against the former dean of the University of Iowa. Wagner claims that she was denied a promotion because of her political beliefs.

The federal jury in the trial agreed that the university discriminated against Wagner because of her political beliefs, but the jurors were unwilling to hold the former dean responsible.

Because political discrimination is not covered by federal employment law, Wagner could not sue the university, so she filed suit against the dean.

Wagner’s lawyers have filed a motion for a new trial.
