Recommended Posts

What are they seeking?   If it's a money grab what can they say they lost out on...tuition?

re-instatement of the program.

How they can do that by this idk... the OCR report should make this an open and shut case.

Think their lawyer is confused.  Keeps mentioning UND but he is suing the NDUS.  

I hope the NDUS drags it out and runs up the bill on them.  Be interesting to hear who is footing the lawyer fees if they lose.  Hmmm.

Sue the NDUS and I do believe their attorney is the right and honorable Attorney General of the great State of North Dakota.

You're suin' the State kids. Not sure you'll enjoy what follows.  ;) 

Next, the OCR report and findings sure don't lend any help to the complainants. I wouldn't be surprised if the NDUS just appeared before a court and presented the findings of the body with jurisdiction on Title IX (OCR) and said this complaint is baseless and should be tossed on lack of merit. 

Mr. Seigel hopes for quick resolution; me-thinks he'll get his wish at least.

PS - Anyone still wonder why that big-time Title IX firm was hired and brought in to oversee UND's moves during the dropping of baseball, M/W S&D and women's hockey? Their actions and groundwork made OCR disappear in minimal time.

Can't believe Rice would be party to this. How many lawsuits can she handle at a single time?

How can they force a school who had to cut their budget thanks to the governor and former governor to reinstate a program that loses 2 million dollars a year? And why women’s hockey? Why isn’t wrestling, baseball, and swimming getting reinstated too? The program is gone and buried get over it.

Rice is who I’d guess, she did sue her dad and the state of Minnesota.

I’m really not surprised she’s part of the lawsuit.

If their goal is to reinstate the program, they are suing the NDUS and their basis is failure to determine the athletic interests and abilities of women students and women athletes, then their lawyer needs to quit mentioning UND since that isn't the prong they use to remain compliant (which they are per the OCR report), it's the other D1 school in the state.

I hope they win.  We're a hockey school.  It should never have been cut.

To me, that ends my argument.  Bring it back.

The updated article says they want the school to reinstate the program and then have the school pay the legal costs.

NDSU can start a women’s program at the same cost as s Bemdiji St.  UND could do but they’d have to use Gambucci or something smaller.

Dont see any way this goes anywhere, I think UND should be fielding a womens Hockey team, this is not how it ever gets done again.

They really want results, start fundraising  to endow a program. This lawsuit has zero chance of winning or garnering public support. 

I see it more as a FU at the admin that cut the program. I see no positive at all in this.

You have to wonder if that phasing and targeting the whole NDUS is making some around the state cringe.

Schloss updated the article again...

"That will not affect our suit at all,” Siegel said. “The OCR complaints were based on different facts and different legal theories. They didn’t pass on the particular claims that we’re making in our case.”

And we weren’t a hockey school prior to 2002?

The article has also been updated to include the former Olympians. I wish I was making that up.

He should have waited to have all his information then wrote the article. Not update it every 5 minutes.

As jdub pointed out, he almost forgot to mention all the Olympians! No mention of program cost again though....

Lucrative professional womens hockey deals.

Girls high school hockey is growing, it's not going away.  Over 50% of UND students are female.

We're a hockey school.  Kennedy better step it up. 

 

Again, I hope they win. 

But not growing enough for Central and Red River to field separate teams. So if they reinstate the program how many of the people on social media screaming to reinstate it are going to pay a ticket (provided it’s no longer free admission) and show up. Hopefully more than the 200 that found their way to a playoff game.
